Bridging the gap and facilitating collaboration with industrial partners
For researchers seeking to collaborate with industrial partners, the IXAnext program provides the Physics2Market Grant. This grant encourages knowledge utilisation, by helping researchers validate physics-related research. This is helpful when companies need further proof that a science-based concept or technique can indeed have a practical application before they agree to collaborate.
The total available budget is €250,000. To extend their research, researchers can apply for a project budget of between €10,000 and €35,000. There is no deadline; continuous application is possible. IXA will award the Physics2Market Grant to researchers as long as the budget allows.
