For researchers who want to collaborate with industrial partners the IXAnext program provides the Physics2Market Grant. This grant is meant for situations in which companies need further prove that a science based concept or technique can have a practical application before they agree on cooperating. It helps researchers to validate physics-related research and encourages knowledge utilization.
The total available budget is € 250,000. Researchers can apply projects, in the extension of their research, with a budget between 10 and 35k€. There is no deadline; application is possible continuously. IXA will award the Physics2Market Grant to researchers as long as the budget is available.
