‘Big science:’ What’s it really worth?

Posted by on in Events

A Science|Business dinner debate, Brussels - 03 March 2014

Particle accelerators, biobanks, telescopes, scientific databases - these are among the "big science" research infrastructure projects that have become an essential feature of the research world. Their scientific value is obvious. But their economic value can also be great: The World Wide Web was born at CERN. Can we quantify this kind of broader, indirect economic or social benefit? 

This dinner debate is to gather evidence and views on potential spin-offs from major research infrastructure projects across Europe. The objective: To suggest ways that science policy makers can leverage their investments in these big facilities.
