TRIUMF Science and Technology Gala

TRIUMF Science & Technology Gala

Invited members of the Vancouver entrepreneur and technology community gathered at TRIUMF on June 20, 2013, for a social gala.

After specialized tours of TRIUMF and our experimental facilities, guests attended two short stimulating presentations: one on the recent Higgs boson discovery aimed to quench guests "where do we come from" curiosity; and the other, an appeal to the technical side with an introduction to advanced particle-accelerator technologies.


With presentations by:

Dr. David Morrissey

"Higgs and the Origin of Matter"


Dr. Lia Merminga

"Accelerators Across Science and Society: The Next 100 Years"
