Why is there no European Google or Amazon? Why have some of Europe’s hottest start-ups, such as Sweden’s Spotify, moved to Silicon Valley? It is not for lack of great technology or breakthrough science. It is because the mechanism for scaling up promising ventures to global markets is simply not working.
ATTRACT is a pioneering initiative bringing together Europe’s fundamental research and industrial communities, to lead the next generation of detection and imaging technologies.
The session will be led by Markus Nordberg, Head of Resources Development of the Development and Innovation Unit at CERN, together with Pablo Garcia Tello, Section Head of the CERN EU Office, developing new EU funded projects and initiatives. Together, they coordinate the ATTRACT project.
It will take place on Thursday, 29 April 2021 from 15:00 – 15:30 CEST.
