As a member of the LINX Association, your company get cheap access to consultancy on product or process innovation – or challenges related to them. Anything related to materials.

Based on discussions, LINX will see if a university could be a good partner for you to help your business along. We will contact the right researchers, make introductions, and set up a meeting for all.

Once the project is fully discussed, LINX will identify sources of public funding to actually create it. If the project idea seems strong enough to win a call, LINX will put pen to paper and draft a funding application for your company. We want the project to happen.

Typical funding sources could be either Innobooster, or a corporate Ph.D. or postdoc. Should these approaches fail, other options (e.g. corporate Master student) will be explored.

Apart from these hand-on activities, LINX will provide a strong network for your company to mingle with others, learn from their innovation processes and get a broader knowledge about what universities may actually bring to industry. And to you.
