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 EU and national grants and funding opportunities aimed at stimulating impact and valorisation in research, as offered by your the university.
If you would like to apply for a research grant, such as the Horizon Europe program and calls from institutes such as NWO, SIA, RVO etc. it is 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 university, but in general includes:
In addition to EU and national grants, your university set up several funds, managed and executed by your IXA team, to stimulate impact and valorisation with research results. If you are interested in this type of funding, such as Proof-of-Concept, Pre-seed and/or feasibility funding, see the Finance your innovation section in this site.
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 IXA’s business developers.
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.
