You can contact business development whenever you have an idea or innovation that might be interesting for a wider audience. Or maybe you want to set up a collaboration with an external partner. Questions range from app development to teaming up with public- and private partners in collaborations. This can be forming a research collaboration that attracts external funding or creating a spin-off company.
Together with business development you will assess your idea, invention or collaboration from many perspectives to ensure a thorough review of the opportunities and potential pitfalls. E.g. What public health problem is going to be solved? Who is your audience/ target group? What is the cost-effectiveness of your solution? And what are competing solutions? After a successful assessment, business development can also assist you in getting your idea, invention or collaboration funded. For more information please contact Davey Groothoff.
