We offer researchers the expertise of grant advisers, business developers and legal experts to help determine a valorisation/ impact strategy. We assist in setting up collaborations with third parties and/or starting new ventures, while managing intellectual property and other legal and financial support. For researchers to develop their skills on valorisation and entrepreneurship, IXA organises workshops, courses and masterclasses on a regular basis. Go to For researchers for more information or have a look at our Workshops & Events page.
For companies, non-profits, governments, health care and educational institutions, etc., we provide a gateway to research expertise, high-tech facilities and research infrastructure, contract research, collaboration and investment opportunities. Go to For companies/non-profits to find out more.
