CERN has a significant upgrade programme, the High Luminosity (HiLumi) LHC project which is taking place over the next decade.
CERN are organising industry events to promote the HiLumi project. The 2nd HiLumi Industry Day will take place in Lisbon, Portugal on the 31 October 2016, jointly organised by CERN and FCT. Following on from this the 3rd HL-LHC Industry Day, jointly organised by CERN and STFC, will take place in Warrington, UK on 30 March 2017.
These events follow on from the previous industrial workshop “HiLumi LHC goes to Industry” held at CERN in June 2015. At the event companies will meet with HiLumi Project Engineers and learn about the upcoming challenges and future procurement opportunities. The day is structured with presentations in the morning and business to business meetings in the afternoon.
CERN are looking for companies in the fields of:
- Power electronics
- Electrical engineering
- Ultra-high vacuum
- Civil engineering
