In 2016, CERN started investigating the use of GEMPix to measure the 3D energy deposition of a therapeutic ion beam in a water phantom, for medical imaging purposes.
GeneROOT uses a data-processing framework developed at CERN for the high-energy physics community, to analyse large genomics datasets.
In November 2018, an ESA-led team came to CERN to test many space components with one of the most energetic radiation beams available on earth: the lead-ion beam delivered by CERN’s Super Proton Synchrotron (SPS) accelerator.
As part of the global response to the COVID-19 pandemic, a team led by physicists and engineers from the LHCb collaboration has proposed a design for a novel ventilator.

The Hyperloop competition, intiated by SpaceX and Tesla founder Elon Musk, sets the challenge of devising a pod-like transportation system travelling at sonic or even ultrasonic speeds in high-vacuum tubes over several hundreds of kilometres - reducing travel times from hours to minutes.

IGLUNA is an educational project aimed at investigating the realisation of a human habitat on the moon. 18 student teams from all over Europe, built several technology demonstrators for this habitat.
A2O Innovation Solutions is a start-up providing technologies for weight reduction, operational efficiency and CO2 emission reduction mainly targeted at the transport sector.
CERN signed a knowledge transfer agreement with the company ETM, a 100% owned subsidiary of Siemens AG.
The following CERN irradiation facilities will be part of CERN-ESA protocol on radiation testing: IRRAD, CERF, n_TOF, and CALLAB.
