Industrial Liaison Network

The IOF provides a supporting framework for collaboration between the Ghent University Association and industry, through the Industrial Liaison Network. This consists of a number of business development centers that group complementary research departments by application area or domain of expertise.

Each center is responsible for technology transfer within its area of competence. A center is headed by a business development manager who can act as your direct point of contact for industrial partnerships, be it research, services, collaborative research, or IP licensing.

New business development centres are created through approval of applications by the IOF council.
