Business incubator of CERN tech opens in Greece

CERN and the business incubator Technopolis Thessaloniki Incubator S.A. announced the launch of a new Business Incubation Centre (BIC) for CERN technologies in Thessaloniki, Greece. The agreement follows the establishment of BICs in 3 other CERN Member States: the UK, Netherlands and, last month, Norway.

CERN Director-General Rolf Heuer signed an agreement with President of CERN’s Knowledge Transfer (KT) group, A.Tzikas.

Technopolis will provide local support, while successful applicants will also receive 40 hours of free consultancy from CERN experts with the support of the KT Group. The company will also provide infrastructure and facilities management, business development support and advice and a valuable grant for a period of up to two years.

“The main objective is to support start-up companies from the beginning and accompany them in their development as well as offering researchers from Greece the vision to convert their research ideas and results into sustainable business ventures. This helps to bridge the gap between the academic and business communities.”

Even if the start-up companies do not use a CERN technology, but are active in an area where CERN has expertise, they can benefit from this expertise by collaborating with scientists who have faced similar challenges.
