Knowledge and entrepreneurship
Some ideas you realise on your own, for others, you surround yourself with experts. Below, we’ll introduce you to some of our knowledge partners.
University of Antwerp - Valorisation Office
The Valorisation Office is responsible for the operational Valorisation policy within the Association of University & Colleges of Antwerp (AUHA). Jurgen Joossens, head of the Valorisation Office, explains: “Our valorisation office connects the Antwerp knowledge institutions with companies. We help researchers transfer knowledge and technology to the market and put companies in touch with the right research partners. In addition, we advise on forms of cooperation, we support valorisation projects from the idea to the actual valorisation and we maintain the vitality of our community of spin-offs.”
