Our collaborators

 

CERN openlab is a unique public-private partnership that works to accelerate the development of cutting-edge computing solutions for the worldwide LHC community and wider scientific research.

Through CERN openlab, CERN collaborates with leading technology companies and research institutes. Within this framework, CERN provides access to its complex ICT infrastructure and its engineering experience - in some cases even extended to collaborating institutes worldwide.

Testing in CERN’s demanding environment provides the ICT industry collaborators with valuable feedback on their products, while enabling CERN to assess the merits of new technologies in their early stages of development for possible future use. This framework also offers a neutral ground for carrying out advanced research-and-development activities with more than one company.

We are proud to introduce you to the leading technology companies and research organisations with whom we are collaborating today. Read our brochure to find out more about how you can work with us.
