By setting up a spin-off company, the societal value of products and techniques stemming from research conducted by the Faculty of Science can be directly realised.

The Faculty of Science has already founded several spin-off companies, many of which were supported by the Amsterdam Center for Entrepreneurship (ACE) and the Innovation Exchange Amsterdam (IXA), which has an office at our Faculty location on Amsterdam Science Park. Researchers are assisted with office space and financial support in addition to embarking on partnerships with external investors and application-oriented partners in the business sector or social organisations. If desired, the spin-off company can be incorporated into UvA Holding BV.
