Two upcoming industrial events in connection with the major CERN project for the next decade, the High Luminosity LHC project (HL-LHC), will be held in Lisbon, Portugal on 31 October 2016 and in Warrington, United Kingdom in 2017.
These events follow the previous industrial workshop “HiLumi LHC goes to Industry” held at CERN in June 2015. Leading companies in the fields of superconductivity, cryogenics, power electronics, electrical engineering, mechanics, ultra-high vacuum, radiofrequency and civil engineering will meet HL-LHC project engineers to explore the technical and commercial challenges emerging from the design and procurement of the LHC upgrade accelerator, and to match them with state-of-the-art industrial solutions.
This initiative is structured as an event connecting CERN with the potential industrial partners facing the High Luminosity LHC specific technical challenges. It aims to foster R&D collaborations and knowledge exchange, preparing the field for the deployment of the European commercial potential.
In the morning, the opening ceremony and presentation of the HL-LHC project will be followed by several technical presentations that will detail the main technology domains as well as construction and procurement challenges. The timeline of the procurement to come, and the commercial framework talk will give another opportunity for further discussions.
In the afternoon, business to business meetings on topics relevant to the HL-LHC project will be arranged according to participant interests. In order to ease the organization of this session, participants are invited to sign-up though the registration form.
Companies willing to attend this event in Lisbon are kindly invited to register before Friday 30 September 2016. Registration for the UK event will be opened in December.
