CERN personnel: Apply for the CERN Knowledge Transfer Fund

The CERN Knowledge Transfer Fund helps CERN employees develop and market their ideas, bridging the gap between research and industry. If you are a CERN employee working on technology with potential applications that could benefit society outside of CERN, this is the time for you to apply for the CERN KT Fund.

Since 2011, the CERN KT Fund has funded 41 projects with each project receiving 15-220kCHF. The projects usually last between one to four years. The CERN KT Fund selection committee meets in June 2018 to identify the projects that will receive funding.

Projects funded during 2017 include technologies related to superconductivity, accelerators and lasers with potential applications in aerospace, cultural heritage and industrial quality control.
