TechTransfer & Industrial Research Fund (IOF) Online Infosession

Would you like to give your research a boost? As a researcher it is the perfect time to find out íf and hów you can transfer your research to the market, and thus creating benefit for society. Ghent University TechTransfer and the Industrial Research Fund (IOF) are here to help you in this adventure. 

To be able to give specific examples, linked to your research field, we offer 3 information sessions, each focussed on a specific domain: social sciences & humanities, exact & applied sciences and biomedical & medical sciences. The core of these 3 sessions will be the same, the examples will be tailored to the different disciplines.

Is this for me?

This info session is for researchers who are not yet familiar with UGent TechTransfer and the Industrial Research Fund (IOF) and are interested in transferring their research into the market (possible in many ways).

What can you expect?

  • different options for valorizing your research
  • funding possibilities within Ghent University via IOF project calls for transferring research into business
    (from 50K up to 650K euro)
  • interesting, available Ghent University courses (most of them for free for Ghent University personnel) 
  • UGent TechTransfer support (contracts, protection of research results, …)
  • insight in your direct UGent TechTransfer contact person
  • Q&A 

The session itself will last 1 hour. Afterwards there is time for Q&A. The session is given in English. 

Who are we?

  • The Industrial Research Fund (IOF) manages the funds for valorisation-oriented research at Ghent University and the associated colleges. The fund is subsidized by the Flemish government. 
  • UGent TechTransfer manages the intellectual property of the university, drives the use of the IP through the creation of spin-offs and licensing, and supports the research community of Ghent University in creating research collaborations with industry.
