 Establishing and Maintaining an Innovation Framework, 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.

The aim of the first ESS TT conference is to achieve a broad and effective exchange of best practice among ESS partner organisations. The conference is organised in the framework of the Horizon 2020 project BrightnESS and will focus on the importance of the establishment and maintenance of an innovation framework and its ecosystem.

The one-day event will be divided into two blocks. Each block will have three speakers with strong knowledge transfer background. The blocks will be finalized by interactive workshops to provide a forum of best practice exchange from similar organisations.
