Minister of Higher Education, Science, and Innovation of the Republic of South Africa, Hon. Dr Blade Nzimande, will be opening the 2023 conference on Technology and Instrumentation in Particle Physics (TIPP) at the Cape Town International Conference Centre (CTICC) on Monday, 4 September.
The TIPP conference series, the science driven cross-disciplinary conference, started in Tsukuba, Japan in 2009 (TIPP 2009), followed by Chicago in 2011 (TIPP 2011), Amsterdam in 2014 (TIPP2014), Beijing in 2017 (TIPP2017) and Triumph in 2021 (TIPP2021).
The sixth iteration of the Technology and Instrumentation in Particle Physics (TIPP) conference was opened at the Cape Town International Convention Centre on Monday. This is the first time that the TIPP conference has been held in Africa. (Perhaps oddly, this puts Africa on the same level as Europe, which has so far also hosted only one of the TIPP series, in 2014.)
During the last edition of the 6th Technology and Instrumentation in Particle Physics (TIPP 2023), the ATTRACT project was presented by Pablo García Tello who shared some of the lessons learnt during the two phases of this project that could prove insightful for understanding the process of managing R&D&I Innovation Ecosystems.
