Big Science for Small Countries
    Thursday July 12, 2012 10:45am - 12:15pm @ The Liffey B

    This session seeks to examine the benefits to small EU countries like Ireland of establishing Big Science Facilities in terms of scientific and technological output and economic growth, as well as looking at the alternatives for the large investments required.  

    The session will highlight two case studies on “big science” discussing the experiences of Catalonia with the ALBA synchrotron light source and Virginia USA with Jefferson Lab.

    We will also explore the issue from the EU perspective with a view to policies already in place and strategies that could be employed by the smaller EU countries like Ireland to attract such an investment.

    The speakers will each speak for 10 minutes followed by a formal discussion.
