May 7 and 8, 2012, CATE organizes a study visit to CERN for companies in the Öresund-Kattegatt-Skagerack region interested in producing mechanical components for CATE and the HIE-ISOLDE accelerator at CERN. The purpose of the visit is to let representatives from the various companies meet with persons working at HIE-ISOLDE, and to get the opportunity to actually see the production of various on-going projects at some of the workshops at CERN. Also, there will be the possibility to discuss with various experts from HIE-ISOLDE, and with other people at CERN that may be of interest for your particular company. The program is given below. Those interested in taking part in this visit, please register here
The deadline for registration is Sunday April 22, and please keep in mind that there is only a limited number of places available. Please don´t make any travel arrangements until we confirm your participation latest by Tuesday April 24. Unfortunately CATE will not be able to help with travel costs.
