Business Development

Bringing ground-breaking research to market.

Business Development

If you are a researcher with an interesting research result, a ground-breaking technology or a smart innovation, our business developers can help you to translate scientific or technological innovation to a solution that contributes to societal challenges. They do so by e.g. helping you develop your business case, finding the right partners and to transfer the knowledge to a spin-off or an existing business.

Business Development

If you would like to be involved in the spin-off yourself, the business developers can offer support and help you draw up a business plan. They will also help you attract financing. If the business case requires it, they will help you protect your innovation with a patent application.

Do you want to explore as a researcher how you can identify business opportunities within your research? We offer a bootcamp ‘Entrepreneurial Researcher’ where you can learn entrepreneurial skills.

On behalf of the UT and Saxion, the Novel-T KTO is responsible for closing the deal with industry partners or spin-offs and overseeing the transfer of knowledge.
