The Physics2Market fund offered researchers the opportunity to take physics research from lab to society. For example, by building a prototype or proof-of-concept study, collaborations with companies emerged. Raoul Frese – assistant professor at the Faculty of Science, Biophysics Photosynthesis/Energy at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam – received the last Physics2Market subsidy to further develop material to […]
At Demonstrator Lab, two locations: @Zuidas and @Science Park, researchers and students from the HvA, UvA, VU and Amsterdam UMC can go to develop and test their research-based idea for a product or service. In the past five years, more than 100 projects were launched, from which 21 start-ups have emerged. Jardo Stammeshaus (co-founder of […]

How do you create a team and find financial support when you launch a start-up? IXA talked to postdoctoral researcher and entrepreneur Alexander Kostenko. When Alexander launched his start-up Photosynthetic in 2019 to build a new kind of 3D printer, he didn’t have a team yet, nor financial resources. Now, he has found a team […]
How is diversity and inclusivity relevant for start-ups? And what can you do as a start-up to contribute to these themes? IXA sits down with Michael Musandu and Bouchra Talidi to talk about the benefits of building a diverse and inclusive start-up and to receive some tips on how to do so.
What is it like to participate in the Amsterdam Science & Innovation Award? We spoke to Dr Monalisa Goswami about her participation in 2017. The Amsterdam Science and Innovation Award is “a celebration of innovation coming out from scientists,” says Monalisa. “It makes you feel special.” The Amsterdam Science and Innovation Award (AmSIA) is the […]
What are the first steps when beginning a start-up? IXA sat down with postdoctoral researcher and entrepreneur Alexander Kostenko to obtain advice for starting academic entrepreneurs. Starting a company is “really hard,” explains Alexander Kostenko with a smile. Alexander found his start-up Photosynthetic in 2019 so he could build high-end 3D printers that make micron-sized objects […]
