Establishing an Innovation Infrastructure, 1st ESS TTO Conference

11th October 2017, Lyngby, Denmark

Organised by the BrightnESS project, in partnership with the Technical University of Denmark and HEPTech

As a green field research facility and one of the largest science and technology infrastructure projects being implemented in Europe today, the European Spallation Source (ESS) offers many innovation opportunities. To leverage the scientific and technological opportunities arising from the design, construction and operation, ESS is currently in the process of establishing an innovation management structure within the ESS organization and implementing specific steps to build internal capacity. 

To achieve these goals most efficiently, broad exchange of best practice among ESS partner organisations will take place through the organization of a technology transfer conference, under the framework of the Horizon 2020 project BrightnESS, focused on the importance of the innovation infrastructure.

The one-day conference will be divided into two blocks, each having three speakers with strong technology transfer background. The blocks will be finalized by workshops to provide a forum of best practice exchange from similar organisations.

The target group consist of ESS and partner organizations Innovation Stakeholders (Innovation Ambassadors) and ESS and partner’s management employees and TTO/Knowledge Transfer Offices employees.
