The CERN Business Incubation Centre (BIC) @ Nikhef is a collaboration between Nikhef (the Dutch National Institute for Subatomic Physics) in Amsterdam and CERN (European Organisation for Nuclear Research) in Geneva.
The BIC aims to develop new products and services from technology, originating from (astro) particle physics. The BIC offers access to technologies, expertise and IP (intellectual property) from CERN and Nikhef. Together with our partners we offer an environment in which companies can grow from technological concept to market realisation. From startup to flourishing enterprise.
Our partners are:
