NTNU School of Entrepreneurship has developed a close cooperation with CERN, Switzerland, one of the world’s largest research centers. Every year the new students visits the research facility in Switzerland to discover and test new applications for CERN’s technology. They can later choose the technology as their commercialization project for the next semester.
Today, former student and entrepreneurship development officer from CERN, Ranveig Strøm, visited year 4 students at NTNU School of Entrepreneurship. She held a presentation for them about which technologies they could choose to test new applications for. The technology is software or hardware, often made for tasks related to the particle accelerator. This software and hardware have a lot of potential in other areas as well, and the goal for the trip to CERN is for the students to experience how it is to start with a technical product and try to find new ways to commercialize it through an intensive feasibility study.
