CERN Accelerating science

Intel Innovation and Entrepreneurship project (I&E)

The Innovation and Entrepreneurship project (I&E) is a collaboration between CERN openlab, IdeaSquare, the KT Group, and Intel to define a process to support innovation and identify interesting technical ideas within the CERN community. The main project objectives over a three-year period — with yearly checkpoints — are to raise awareness in the scientific community about good practices in innovation management, to support talented individuals interested in building entrepreneurship experience, and to organise and participate in events about innovation management and entrepreneurship with expert speakers and coaches from various technical and business domains. At least one major event per year is planned where ideas with good exploitation potential emerging from the scientific community will be presented to a panel of experts to assess their feasibility and receive guidance on how to define and implement the business and technical plans.
