One upcoming industrial event in connection with the major CERN project for the next decade, the High Luminosity LHC project (HL-LHC), will be held at the Park Royal in Warrington, United Kingdom on 22-23 May 2017.

This event follows the 2nd HiLumi Industry Day held in Lisbon in October 2016. Leading companies in the fields of superconductivity, cryogenics, power electronics, electrical engineering, mechanics, ultra-high vacuum or radiofrequency will meet HL-LHC project engineers to explore the technical and commercial challenges emerging from the design and procurement of the LHC upgrade accelerator, and to match them with state-of-the-art industrial solutions.

This initiative is structured as an event connecting CERN with the potential industrial partners facing the High Luminosity LHC specific technical challenges. It aims to foster R&D collaborations and knowledge exchange, preparing the field for the deployment of the European commercial potential.

In the morning, the presentation of the HL-LHC project will be followed by several technical presentations that will detail the main technology domains as well as construction and procurement challenges. The timeline of the procurement to come, and the commercial framework talk will give another opportunity for further discussions.

In the afternoon and on the following morning, CERN to Business and Business to Business meetings on topics relevant to the HL-LHC project will be arranged according to participant interests. In order to ease the organization of this session, participants are invited to sign-up though the registration form.

On Monday evening, the participants will have the opportunity to prolonge their discussions during the networking drinks reception which will be held in the Royal Suite Foyer after the meetings.
