TERAPET — from CERN physics to cancer therapy

Terapet,

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. 

FPGA programming with LabVIEW - hands-on workshop

On 17th November, IdeaSquare is organising an FPGA hands-on workshop aimed at members of the CERN community under the precious instruction of Adriaan Rijllart. This free of charge workshop will allow 9 people to gain hands-on experience of FPGA programming and the use of LabVIEW for scientific purposes.

In this training you will learn the basics of a graphical programming language called 

CMS Patatrack Hackathon

From 1 - 4 November 2021, CMS held their Patatrack Hackathon in the open space at IdeaSquare. Both newcomers and experts were involved in this in-person hackathon, of which IdeaSquare has hosted a number of successful variations.

 

ISOLDE

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.
