Industrial Liaison Network

The Industrial Reseach Fund (IOF) provides a supporting framework for collaboration between the Ghent University Association and industry, through the Industrial Liaison Network.

IOF-Business Development Centers

Each business development center is responsible for technology transfer within its area of expertise. 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.

IOF platforms

The IOF platforms combine various research domains, meeting the increasing social and economic importance of interdisciplinarity. The IOF platform coordinator is the central point of contact for a specific area of expertise. With these IOF valorisation platforms, the Ghent University Association wants to make maximum use of multidisciplinary valorisation opportunities within core expertise domains.
