From Collisions and Collaboration to Innovation and Design Thinking –
Is there anything that could work outside physics?
Dr. Nordberg's talk demostrated the importance of collaborative research in experimental particle physics, using CERN as a case study. He focused on IdeaSquare as an on-going experiment on how detector R&D related efforts could be connected with society-driven innovation, without compromising the basic research mission of the organization. In the discussion with the audience, he explored the possibility of loosely applying the model outside the domain of particle physics.
