Linda Orr-Easo CERN Global Network Manager Sustainability of the WSIS Implementation through Stocktaking Process 11 May 2010, Geneva
OVERALL AIMS Develop a knowledge exchange network to encourage: Networking (Current, former CERN Personnel) -Federate the CERN Community Knowledge exchange -Facilitate and optimize the knowledge exchange process Sustainability - identify, maintain, develop
BACKGROUND External Mobility programme (end 2008-now) Keen interest expressed from institutions for knowledge exchange Knowledge exchange given Management endorsement as important role for CERN Technology Transfer – Knowledge and Technology Transfer CERN Global Network launched 29 May 2010, > 400 Members
WHY HAVE A CERN COMMUNITY -Already exists informally, need to bring together, develop -International nature of research at CERN -Capitalize on wide variety of networks – identify specific profiles, expertise, partnership opportunities -Ambassadors for CERN and for its activities -Keep in contact with current and former Personnel worldwide Key players Current and former members of CERN personnel Research Institutes/Universities Companies from Member States
CERN AS A KNOWLEDGE HUB Generated at CERN in the framework of its activities; Brought into CERN by people from institutions worldwide; Exported outside CERN through people’s mobility, training, technology transfer, procurement, etc.
CERN GLOBAL NETWORK 6 Dedicated web site Information on knowledge exchange activities Additional visibility for partnership opportunities across the Network (recruitment, technology transfer, training, sponsorship) Member database Professional networking with CERN “Alumni” Useful data on people’s mobility and career evolution in Europe Discussion forums for special interest groups Interactions between individuals and institutional Members Link job seekers with potential employers Exchange of best practices between institutions in specific thematic areas Organization of knowledge exchange events at CERN
KNOWLEDGE AREAS Examples of Groups, so far: -HEP Technologies for Energy and the Environment -Scientific Communication -Financial Planning and Management -Hadron Therapy -CLOUD computing -Aerospace -HEP Experiments
