Accelerating the Socio-Economic Impact of Physics Technology for Health

CERN, Geneve, Switzerland & GSI Helmholtz Centre, Germany

While I was an EU Marie Curie Fellow, I collaborated with the HEPTech Network at CERN in Switzerland, and GSI in Germany. My work consisted of mapping the knowledge-related, social, and economic impact of high energy physics for health (e.g. see this study on particle therapy of cancer). By using data-driven and mixed-method approaches, I identified technological trajectories and suggested ways to accelerate the emergence of new technologies that can positively impact society.

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