Join the 14th “Germany at CERN” industrial exhibition and discover the components of tomorrow


The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), together with CERN, is holding the 14th “Germany at CERN” industrial exhibition – for the first time in a digital format

Around 30 German companies will showcase highly innovative products and services to CERN scientists, engineers, technicians and procurement officials on the occasion of the “Germany at CERN” exhibition on 28 April 2021. The event is an opportunity for CERN staff and companies to exchange ideas, establish leads for future contracts and address the upcoming challenges at CERN.

Everyone at CERN is welcome to attend the event, which will be opened by CERN Director-General Dr Fabiola Gianotti and Dr Volkmar Dietz, Deputy Director-General of the Large Facilities and Fundamental Research unit at the BMBF.

The event consists of an information webinar aimed at the companies, followed by company presentations in an online exhibition. Individual video meetings between company representatives and CERN staff can be scheduled.

For CERN staff interested in getting in touch with the exhibitors, additional information regarding the programme, the participants and their profiles will be available online shortly:

If you are not a CERN contact person for the Industrial Days and wish to make appointments with the German companies, please send an email to in order to obtain an invitation.

While the global situation has evolved since the last iteration, the purpose of the event remains unchanged: to expand the commercial relationship between CERN and leading companies in its Member States. Procurement is a fundamental aspect of CERN’s economic impact in its Member States and, conversely, advances in accelerators, detectors and computing are taking shape through successful commercial collaborations with a wide range of industries.
