This chapter draws on the results of a survey to look at what external suppliers get out of their interactions with the ATLAS Collaboration. The detector is a source of ‘stretch goals’ for the firms that supply its components, allowing the collaboration to present itself as a ‘lead user’ of innovative goods and services provided by these firms. In short, ATLAS acts as a stimulus to organization learning by its suppliers and helps them to build up the social capital necessary to profit from it.
