About the webinars
The valorisation webinars cover various topics concerning sharing knowledge and thus creating impact in society. The webinars help you to explore the possibilities of valorisation, knowledge transfer and entrepreneurship.
To get you started right away the webinars are highly interactive, information dense and practical: you can use it immediately.

The webinars are developed by IXA, the joint knowledge transfer office of HvA, UvA, VU and Amsterdam UMC. They are open to researchers, PhD’s and employees supporting knowledge dissemination (of exchange) from these universities and for colleagues from the KNAW and NWO Institutes.

Each institution has its own dedicated IXA team that offers researchers and PhD’s support in a broad sense: from developing your idea further, starting new collaborations with outside parties, applying for research funding and supporting the start of your own company.
