VUB TechTransfer organizes an online information session on doctoral and post-doctoral mandates funded by Flanders Innovation and Entrepreneurship (VLAIO): Baekeland mandates & Innovation mandates.
The purpose of the Baekeland mandates is to support strategic research at doctoral level in close collaboration and co-funded by a company. The mandates should be directed towards achieving a PhD and should aim to build up scientific or technological knowledge as a basis for economic applications.
Innovation mandates target postdoctoral researchers who wish see their research findings applied in industry, either through collaboration with an existing company, or a new spin-off company to be established.
During this webinar information will be given about the details and requirements for the calls as well as what kind of support VUB TechTransfer can offer. Additionally, an experienced VUB researcher will share his journey and tips & tricks. Afterwards, there is time for Q&A.
