Experimental Physics Department would like to invite his members of personnel to the 2nd EP-KT Innovation Day organised in collaboration with the CERN Knowledge Transfer (KT) Group. This event will take place on Wednesday 9th of October 2019 in Room 6-2-024.

The aim of the EP-KT Innovation Day is to discover and promote new technologies and ideas that have potential applications outside of High Energy Physics (HEP), in order to maximise the global positive impact of CERN on society. Following an introduction by KT, EP personnel can present their ideas and suggest possible areas of application, as well as how the work could be further developed for successful transfer to external partners. The focus is on new opportunities and ideas, regardless of their stage of development.

If you believe that your work has applications outside of CERN & HEP, we invite you to complete the attached submission form and email it to EP-innovation-day@cern.ch by no later than end of day 20th of September.  Applicants will be informed within 10 days whether they are invited to present on 9th October. Following the Innovation Day, suitable projects will be shortlisted for KT Fund support or other types of support, according to eligibility. The next KT Fund selection committee will be held on 1st  November.

We strongly encourage you to attend the event, even if you do not have a submission to make, it will provide an opportunity to discover the innovative work happening across the sector.

We ask all participants to register on the Indico page: https://indico.cern.ch/event/828530/

Looking forward to seeing you on 9th October 2019.
