EST, affiliated big science organization at BSBF 2021

The European Solar Telescope will be one of the four Affiliated Big Science Organisations of the Big Science Business Forum (BSBF) 2021. Being an Affiliated Big Science Organisation will offer EST the opportunity to participate in specially designed sessions with European industries. In addition, the project will also have its own dedicated booth at the exhibition area.

The 2021 Forum will be the second edi­tion of this single one-stop-shop where European companies and other stake­holders can learn about Europe’s big science organisations’ future invest­ments and procurements. The previous edition, held in Copenhagen in 2018, gathered more than 1000 par­ticipants from over 500 organizations and 29 countries.

The host organisers for BSBF2021 are the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation, CDTI (Centro para el Desarrollo Tecnológico e Industrial) and CIEMAT (Centro de Investigaciones Energéticas, Medioambientales y Tecnológicas). The event is co-organised with other European big scence organizations (CERN, EMBL, ESA, ESO, ESRF, ESS, European XFEL, FAIR, F4E, ILL and SKA). It also counts with the support of the Instituto de Astrofísica de Andalucía-CSIC (one of EST consortium members), and the programme includes a visit to Calar Alto Observatory (Almería, Spain).
