Research & Valorisation facilitates the entrepreneurial spirit of the University by cooperating with companies and researchers. Our aim is to combine the research priorities of the University with business and innovation.

We give advice about financial opportunities for public private partnerships and support researchers on business development and patent applications.

Examples over research projects can be found at research collaborations and our brochure about valorization. More information about our department can also be found in our Annual Report, or you can contact us at:

De department of Research & Valorisation aims to combine research with societal or economic challenges. This usually takes the form of public-private partnerships in which knowledge institutions and companies work together on a combined research topic. There are a lot of funding opportunities for public-private partnerships on a regional, national or global scale. We are experienced in using these opportunities as a basis for public private partnerships.

Research & Valorisation also helps ambitious and talented researches to apply for funding. This way the best ideas get the attention and the funding they deserve. At the same time, we keep on stimulating talent by making sure that research at the University of Groningen belongs to the top of its class. We therefore advice the Board of Directors about quality assurance and research strategy.

We have divided our department in three teams:

The Faculty Funding Officers are active on decentral level of the faculties.
