CERN Knowledge Transfer Group joins the EIROforum Working Group on Innovation Management.

On 1 July 2011 the rotating Chairmanship of EIROforum passed from EFDA-JET to CERN.

Since 2002 the EIROforum, a collaboration between eight European intergovernmental scientific research organisations that are responsible for infrastructures and laboratories, has been combining resources, facilities and expertise of its member organisations in support of European science‚ excellence.

Today the forum enlarges its areas of activities by introducing a Working Group on Innovation Management. The Working Group brings together Technology Transfer experts from CERN, EFDA-JET, EMBL, ESA, ESO, ESRF, European XFEL and ILL. CERN is actively represented by Enrico Chesta, Technology Transfer section leader, and Giovanni Anelli, Knowledge Transfer group leader.
