About BSBF 2024

BSBF – Big Science Business Forum is a business oriented congress, focused on high technology and innovation with the aim to be the main meeting point between Research Infrastructures and industry in Europe. In 2024 Italy will host the third edition of the event in the city of Trieste, after the success of the previous editions in Copenhagen and Granada, where more than 1.000 delegates from more than 500 organisations and 30 countries gathered together to discuss the future prospects of the Big Science Market.
