What happens when we apply fundamental science to real-world challenges?
Today, TERAPET is a Swiss medical technology start-up, but the idea did not start off in the business world. Two of the three founders had the idea when working on proton beam technology here at CERN.
Researchers from ISOLDE used our facilities to make many different things. Using the water jet cutter we were able to quickly and cheaply create non-magnetic brass tools for their highly magnetic equipment.
During 3 days in November 2021, IdeaSquare was able to provide 3D printers and access to the machine shop to members of CLEAR (CERN Linear Electron Accelerator for Research) for a prototyping project under the skillful supervision of Oscar Lilleløkken, workshop supervisor.
Umut Kose, long-term resident of IdeaSquare, has been involved in a number of projects which are developed at the intersection between science and art. One of these projects is Fluidic Data.
