If you are a researcher with an idea or a discovery but don’t have the financing to investigate its technical feasibility, then the Valorisation Pre-seed may be an option.
Valorisation Pre-seed is co-financing for researchers who want to test the feasibility and function of their discovery, invention or idea. This financing is intended only to conduct a (technical) feasibility study with concrete end results that contribute to the further development, application and market implementation of the discovery or idea. UtrechtInc and the Rabo Pre-seed Fonds are the founders of the Valorisation Pre-seed funds.
This fund is meant for researchers who work for or on behalf of Utrecht University, UMC Utrecht and the Utrecht University of Applied Sciences. For more information about the conditions and how to submit a request, please visit UtrechtInc.
