Why participate

BSBF2024 is a unique opportunity for European businesses and organizations to be fully informed and get involved in calls and competitions for billions of euro per year managed directly by international Big Science Organizations (BSOs), under specific rules and procedures.

Networking is a key pillar in BSBF, where delegates will be able to pre-arrange B2B with representatives from BSOs, industry or other institutions. This will be possible thanks to the commitment of the member organisations, who will be present with their maximum authorities, procurement teams and technical staff. The event also includes an industrial exhibition, with more than 120 stands available to European industry and other international stakeholders.

In Plenary Sessions the Director Generals from the ten BSOs will provide keynote presentations and an overview of their organisations’ future projects. Following these, the congress is structured in parallel sessions which will cover many technological areas as well horizontal thematic issues. On the second day the parallel sessions will resume, along with a second Plenary Session devoted to explore industrial experiences within the Big Science Common Market in Europe.
