Digital technologies drive almost all aspects of modern life: from basic everyday tasks like measuring the distance walked to creating positive socio-economic impact through digital twins of cities.
CERN technologies pose countless possibilities for such innovative digital solutions. The expertise and technological know-how from CERN can also be used in areas beyond high-energy physics like preventing fraud in financial markets, helping autonomous- driving vehicles make faster decisions, art restoration and digital preservation of cultural heritage, and for contributing towards a healthier and more sustainable planet.
…exploring new applications
The potential application areas of CERN technologies are obviously not limited to the ones mentioned above. Have a look at our technology portfolio - maybe any of our technologies could apply to your industry? Or maybe your company could learn from any of CERN’s areas of expertise?
