The student will profit from CERN Guidance and Know-How to Develop a Business Idea.
“The federal state of Lower Austria with its start-up service ‘accent’ has been admitted to the circle of ten European business incubation centres able to offer access to CERN technologies to selected start-ups”, explains Petra Bohuslav, State Councillor for Technology.
St. Pölten UAS Sends Eight Students
CERN in Switzerland is the world’s biggest and probably most renowned particle physics lab. It shares scientific findings from physics with researchers around the globe.
The St. Pölten UAS offers its students the chance to gain first-hand CERN experience within framework of the Screening Week. Together with top researchers from all over the world, they work on the economic implementation of CERN know-how, thus contributing to the integration of scientific findings into the business sector.
Students from the Department of IT Security at the St. Pölten UAS seized this opportunity and applied for participation in the CERN Screening Week. In addition to exclusive insights into CERN technologies, the participants gain economic competencies as well.
Preparations under Way
The highlight – the on-site visit to the CERN Screening Week – will take place in February 2020. Until then, the students and their mentors work on the economic exploitation of technologies made available directly by CERN. Back at the UAS, the teams will have the opportunity of further mentoring all the way to the development of a business model.
