Campus Value

The importance of value creation - valorization -

Print this page

Public funding for fundamental research is declining. As of 2016, the (Dutch) government will start to view social and economic impact as a key performance indicator for public research institutes. The responsibility to proof what research is worth falls on those who require the funds: researchers need to show social and economic impact. Valorization is the application of assets so that they proof their value when they result in earnings.

Campus expertise includes that of entrepreneurship, IP management, business development, management consulting, funding, real estate and financial services, as well as legal and regulatory affairs. We work with clustered SMEs to formulate research questions and realize market-driven fundamental research

The people on the campus,
are the campus.


The services on the Healthy Ageing Campus Netherlands
all have a similar objective:

  • Facilitating valorization of fundamental research so that it returns in finances for more fundamental research.
  • Fundamental research results in ideas that, through valorization, reach the market
  • The campus parties match-make departments / PI's with organizations in their network, providing project management and legal support on for example intellectual property  issues, providing accommodation and developing financial instruments.
