Contracting research by academic researchers is a specific manner of benefiting from academic research, knowledge and facilities. The Amsterdam research landscape offers a broad range of knowledge and expertise that can be mobilized. Think for instance of:
In contract research and contract manufacturing, you define together with the researcher what is to be expected in terms of output (data, materials, inventories, reports etc.) and standards (quality standards etc.). Together with our researchers you discuss which joined efforts are needed to deliver the required outcomes and to what fee the work will be performed.
At IXA we can take care of the legal arrangements of the cooperation and can draft the research contracts in which rights on intellectual property and ownership on application are described. Of course, these contracts will be tuned to the particular nature of the activities and the needs and interests of the parties involved.
Various projects within the Amsterdam knowledge institutions have received funding through a Take-off program from NWO. With this funding, they can further investigate the market opportunities for their products through a feasibility study or with an early stage route.

VU spin-off Optics11, a company offering high-end fiber sensing solutions, has acquired the fibre-optic technology – known as FAZ Technology – from Fugro. FAZ Technology specialises in the research and development of fibre-optic sensing solutions, whose potential is much broader than Fugro’s core markets; hence Fugro’s decision to divest. FAZ Technology’s fibre-optic sensing solutions will […]News
