Big Science Academy • Make sure you have the necessary knowledge and tools to win orders from ESS, CERN and ITER.

We have invited procurement experts from the facilities to this Big Science Academy – they will be going through the procurement process, step by step, and showing you what you should remember. You will have an opportunity to present your company, and there will also be plenty of time to ask questions directly to the experts. Find out exactly all the practical considerations when preparing tenders that can help you win more orders.

Evaluation from earlier procurement training sessions

“Rewarding hours, and interesting group discussions with companies that are already suppliers to the facilities.”

More information

You can participate in the entire meeting, or just the sessions that interest you. The training session will be recorded and will be available after the event.
