In this paper, some considerations, born directly from the field of the technologist community engaged in the research and development of largest machine built by mankind, the particle accelerator Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, are presented. By this measuring machine, the technology played a crucial role for science, bringing it to new horizons. Conversely, at CERN, the key concepts of advanced physics have permeated the world of technology. For the technological research, a new cooperative model of public knowledge, free, meritocratic, and supranational, is born. For the technological researcher, a new awareness arises, based on the acceptance of his limits and those of the produced technology. But above all, based on the enthusiasm for a new role of the applied research, no longer dominated by profit, consumption or war, but for finally acting as free knowledge engine.

Abstract

In this paper, some considerations, born directly from the field of the technologist community engaged in the research and development of largest machine built by mankind, the particle accelerator Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, are presented. By this measuring machine, the technology played a crucial role for science, bringing it to new horizons. Conversely, at CERN, the key concepts of advanced physics have permeated the world of technology. For the technological research, a new cooperative model of public knowledge, free, meritocratic, and supranational, is born. For the technological researcher, a new awareness arises, based on the acceptance of his limits and those of the produced technology. But above all, based on the enthusiasm for a new role of the applied research, no longer dominated by profit, consumption or war, but for finally acting as free knowledge engine.
