CERN’s Knowledge Transfer group would like to invite you to a Zoom KT seminar on 6 October at 2.00 p.m., to  discover how technological advances for high-energy physics have become essential tools for modern medicine.

This series of short talks is given by Early-Career Researchers (ECRs) working on projects related to diverse medical applications that arise from technology developed at CERN and in high-energy physics. In this seminar, three ECRs working on the Next Ion Medical Machine Study (NIMMS) project will share their work.

The NIMMS project outlines an umbrella R&D programme of critical accelerator technologies related to ion therapy. The programme builds on existing activities and on core CERN competences.  

Maurizio Vretenar will introduce the panel of speakers: Vittorio Bencini, Rebecca Taylor, and Ewa Oponowicz.

Knowledge transfer at CERN could not happen without the knowledge exchange between experts in science, technology and industry. The Knowledge Transfer (KT) seminars, launched in 2016, are a series of events designed to raise awareness about knowledge transfer at CERN and to showcase the diversity of applications of CERN know-how and technology in industry and the resulting positive impact on society. The seminars also aim to inspire a culture of entrepreneurship and to explore and spark interest in other KT-related topics of interest.
