Innovation Exchange Amsterdam (IXA) helps drive the transition of academic and practice-based research and knowledge into ground-breaking innovations and applications that improve lives, transform industries, and create substantial societal and economic impact.
Since 2014 the University of Amsterdam (UvA), Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (HvA), Vrije Universiteit (VU) Amsterdam and Amsterdam UMC join forces of their so-called knowledge transfer offices (KTO) under the name Innovation Exchange Amsterdam (IXA).
IXA is the expert interface between Amsterdam-based universities and parties interested in their research findings and knowledge. Being an interface, IXA deploys its expertise in two directions:
In addition, IXA supports UvA, HvA, VU, Amsterdam UMC, AHK and KNAW management and teaching and supporting staff (HRM, legal, financial, administrative, secretarial and communication) seeking expertise or advice on research-based entrepreneurship, and research funding and grants.
At every campus location throughout Amsterdam, our business developers, legal advisors and grant advisors contribute to developing the Amsterdam innovation ecosystem by bringing people together. Meet the IXA Teams.
IXA offices are an integral part of the universities’ service infrastructure. Therefore, our services, facilities and expertise are free of charge.
