At some point during your research project or the development of your idea, you might need it: money. IXA offers researchers from all the universities’ research disciplines – from engineering, maths and life sciences to the arts, humanities and social sciences – a roadmap to a variety of grants and funding opportunities.
There is a distinction between external EU or national research grants – such as the Horizon Europe program and calls from institutes such as NWO, SIA, RVO, etc. – and funding aimed at stimulating valorisation and innovation in research, as offered by IXA, the universities and other parties.
Applying for research grants
If you would like to apply for a research grant, it may be helpful to know that each university has a dedicated grant support team. They provide tailored support for research grant applications. This concerns both individual and consortium applications, for national as well as international research grants. The level of support varies per institute, but in general includes:

Many grant applications, such as Horizon Europe, require paragraphs on Societal Impact and Knowledge Utilisation. You’re asked to describe in what way your research results benefit society, how they can be of use to companies or public organisations (e.g., museums, charities, governments), and how you intend to collaborate with these parties in order to transfer your knowledge. To help you with those paragraphs, the grant support teams will work closely with the IXA business developers with whom you have already thoroughly discussed and weighed your plans.
To make life yet even easier, IXA’s legal team offers additional support to assist you on the specifics of Consortium and Research Collaboration Agreements. You can read more about this in Arrange legal affairs.
In addition to external EU and national grants, IXA, the universities and other parties set up several funds to stimulate valorisation and innovation in research. If you are interested in Proof-of-Concept funding, Pre-seed funding or feasibility funding, please visit Finance your innovation for more information.
