With this grant IXA stimulates the receiver to validate physics related research towards exploitation in cooperation with an industrial partner. The Physics2Market grant is meant for situations in which companies are hesitant to invest but need further confirmation that a science-based concept can become reality before they agree on cooperating. The primary criteria are:
Researchers (permanent staff, incl. tenure track) of the IXA partner organizations: HvA, UvA, VU, Amolf and Nikhef.
The budget per project is 10 to 35k€. This can be spent on personnel costs, consumables and small, well-motivated investments.

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
