Entrepreneurs

Link the knowledge of the University of Twente and Saxion to your innovation issue

The Science Shop brings entrepreneurs, the University of Twente and Saxion University of Applied Sciences together for matters pertaining to research, consultancy or finding the right knowledge partner. For example, we provide access to the latest scientific knowledge, offer a fresh perspective and form a flexible shell of external experts.

We are there for SMEs, starters and expanding businesses that lack sufficient R&D facilities of their own or are looking for knowledge pertaining to a new field of expertise. We offer scientific knowledge and research, a fresh outlook and new talent for your business in a creative manner.

We consider your question or idea with a flexible and open perspective and will look for a challenging approach that suits the fields of expertise and project forms of the UT and Saxion together. During the intake, we pay attention to issues such as: Which department does this issue belong to? Is it challenging enough for our students? Next, we will discuss the possibilities and opportunities during a free intake interview. During a project, we supervise the entire process from start to finish. A lecturer will provide substantive supervision. If your question does not match the UT’s or Saxion’s expertise, we will strive to put you in contact with a different institution or organisation from our network.

Do you face a challenging issue? Fill out the application or contact one of our consultants. We are happy to help!

The Science Shop’s consultancy services are free of charge. The costs of utilising student researchers or consultants depend on the project form. In many cases, innovation and R&D projects are eligible for subsidies. We can advise you on this matter.

Students

Use your academic knowledge in practice for various business cases

Science Shop connects students to business issues in a wide variety of project forms, including internships, final thesis projects, second jobs, PDeng, etcetera. Are you bursting with excellent and innovative ideas? Would you like to come into contact with a not-for-profit organisation or SME that can give you the opportunity to realise your ambitions? We are happy to help!

Science Shop Twente brings students and entrepreneurs together. Organisations and businesses are often eager to innovate, but they lack the right knowledge, expertise or research capacity to do so. We help them formulate a fun and challenging project that includes a challenging knowledge aspect. You can then carry out this project as part of your Bachelor’s or Master’s programme or as a part-time job. We will make sure that the project goes smoothly from start to finish. Furthermore, a lecturer from the University of Twente or Saxion will supervise you throughout the entire project.

Executing one of our projects gives you the opportunity to put your knowledge and skills into practice and be part of an organisation or business that appreciates your input and is eager to implement your suggestions.
