IOF project funding can be applied at crucial stages of the development track of valorization-oriented projects to offer valuable support to research results/technology with clear value-adding potential (ConcepTT – StarTT – Advanced – Stepstone) IOF project proposals can be submitted continuously by all AUGent researchers with innovative projects.
However, each calender year 4 submission dates are fixed. This allows us to compile the evaluation of the proposals. New project applications have to be announced to the IOF-project department (email@example.com), after which the application form will be made available.
An intake meeting prior to submission is mandatory. The involved stakeholders (ZAP, IOF and the TechTransfer department) are invited to this meeting. Besides a short introduction on the technology, this meeting serves to check the optimal funding track, and to identify potential issues towards the evaluation.
Deadline ConcepTT/ConnecTT/StarTT: 22 April 2024
Deadline Advanced/Stepstone: 7 March 2024
