Consortium for Valorization and Entrepreneurship (CVO)

The aim of the CVO is to bring together innovative knowledge and entrepreneurship in the region, thereby applying the knowledge to meet the needs of society and providing a stimulus for the regional economy. In this context, the objectives are knowledge-intensive entrepreneurship and creating social value from knowledge. As one of the CVO partners, the University of Groningen is actively working to stimulate and develop initiatives within the scope of the University’s spearhead fields ‘Healthy Ageing’ and ‘Energy’.

A multifaceted partner

The CVO is the link between businesses, grant-awarding organizations, educational institutions and other social partners. From this beneficial position, the CVO focuses on activities including

  • acquiring funding and contract research projects
  • cooperation with other research centres and non-academic partners
  • the stimulation of University spin-offs and start-ups


If your business is interested in a possible collaboration, or if you are interested in using academic knowledge for products or services, Please contact Business Generator Groningen or the IP & Business Development department.
