About BSBF 2020 - preannouncement

BSBF 2021 is a business oriented congress which congregates all the European Research Infrastructures, focused on technology and with the aim to be the main meeting point between Research Infrastructures and industry.

This will be the second edition of the event after the success of the previous edition in Copenhagen, where more than 1,000 participants from more than 500 organisations and 29 countries gathered together to discuss the future prospects of the Big Science Market.


Big Science Business Forum 2020 will be the second edition of a one-stop-shop for European companies and other stakeholders to learn about Europe's Big Science organisations' future investments and procurements worth billions of euros. BSBF2020 will contribute to establishing a stronger, more transparent and consolidated Big Science market in Europe, contributing to the sustainability of Big Science facilities, for the benefit of both Big Science organisations and businesses now and in the future.

BSBF2020 will bring together, for the second time, the largest and most cutting edge research infrastructures in Europe and the world: CERN, EMBL, ESA, ESO, ESRF, ESS, European XFEL, F4E,  ILL and SKA as well as other guest and affiliated research organisations.

The forum will offer your business the chance to:
