Accelerating the Socio-Economic Impact of Physics Technology

CERN, Geneve, Switzerland & GSI Helmholtz Centre, Germany

This project was funded by the HEPTech Network at CERN, and included a research visit to GSI and Siemens in Germany.


I mapped the knowledge-related, social, and economic impact of high energy physics for health. I used data-driven and mixed-method approaches to identify technological trajectories and suggest ways to accelerate the emergence of technologies that can positively impact society.

As a result of this project, CERN created Collaboration Spotting, a new platform facilitating the technology transfer from physics labs to society by making it easier to identify technological trajectories and new R&D collaborators.
