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.
