Teaching Entrepreneurship in Practice
Edited by Heidi M. Neck and Yipeng Liu
Chapter 14: Feasibility studies at CERN: CERN as a technology provider for startups
This chapter focuses on feasibility studies for students of entrepreneurship at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Switzerland. It builds on observations of and interviews with knowledge transfer officers at CERN and participating students and course facilitators from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). The study shows that experiential learning is integral to the CERN Screening Week, a joint venture by CERN and NTNU. CERN finds the week valuable for screening, and it also contributes to the learning experiences of NTNU students. Furthermore, the CERN Screening Week benefits from being part of a feasibility study course where students learn the screening methods beforehand and use their experiences at CERN during the rest of the course. Our results provide several implications for educators.
