Big Science continues to be an area of significant European co-operation and there has seen unparalleled expansion in recent decades. From the achievements of CERN and its Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland, to ESS in Sweden and Denmark and to robotics and artificial intelligence, Big Science is a continuously evolving sector. It brings a range of opportunities for scientific research, technology and engineering companies, as well as for other businesses.

Attendees will gain an insight into supplying Big Science organisations and get a better understanding of these organisations and their needs. There will be the opportunity to obtain valuable knowledge on scientific practices and to learn about advanced research, mechanisms and techniques that are relevant to their work.
