Proof-of-Concept call 2018 - Industrial Research Fund VUB

The Proof-of-Concept (PoC) call is open for projects that aim to bring scientific research closer to the market. It focuses on research in a later transitory stage from proof-of-principle to proof-of-concept.

PoC projects need to have a clearly defined valorisation goal: e.g. prototype development, preclinical experiments, drafting of a business plan, market analysis, etc. The projects can run from 1 up to maximal 2 years and the funds cannot be used to cover costs of personnel.

Per project, a budget of 50.000 EUR is foreseen and a detailed budget plan is requested at the time of submission. The total budget allocated for this call is 200.000 EUR. If sufficient budgetary means are available, a new call will be opened in 2019.

Documents are available below.

Call deadline: October 22, 2018 – 4pm
