Announcement IOF results 2019
On December 12, 2018, VUB’s Industrial
Research Council granted 4 Proof-of-Concept (PoC) & 6 Accelerator projects
and awarded 5 Groups of Expertise in Applied Research (GEAR).
- The awarded Groups of Expertise in Applied Research excel in applied research and will receive IOF funding for 5 years to realise their portfolio of applied research and the valorization thereof.
