The 2020 CERN Entrepreneurship Student Programme (CESP) is a European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) & Society Foundation project funded by the Arconic Foundation. Master-level students, in teams or individuals, are all invited for the 2020 CERN Entrepreneurship Student Program (CESP).
Master-level students, in teams or individuals, are all invited to the 2020 CESP.
If you are a Master level student and want to use machine learning in your new start-up, imagine spending 5 weeks at CERN to develop and grow your start-up idea!
You are encouraged to apply as a team of 2-4 students. If you do not have a team, you can apply as an individual too.
Throughout CESP, the successful applicants will work with CERN experts to develop strategies for new ventures solving problems already discovered by the applicants.
During the program, your team will develop a plan on how to build and grow your new venture with the assistance of CERN experts in machine learning as well as CERN Knowledge Transfer professionals. Read the full leaflet.
CESP will run from 20 July to 21 August 2020. During the first weeks, you will meet with experts at CERN and further develop your product-market fit. The weeks will mostly consist of project work with input from technical experts, in addition to a few lectures on technology entrepreneurship. During the final week, you will deliver a final presentation to potential incubators, accelerators and/or investors. The goal is to be ready for start-up incubation after the program is finished.
