Knowledge valorisation

There are a hundred and twenty companies at Amsterdam Science Park, forty of which are the product of a scientific discovery. Different researchers at Amsterdam Science Park are also set to bring their knowledge to the market in the form of companies. They are being assisted by ACE Venture Lab and IXA (Innovation Exchange Amsterdam), which are helping the innovative entrepreneurs find business space in the Matrix Innovation Center, laboratories and - where possible - even customers.

What is valorisation?

Originally a French term, valorisation is a concept which is now widely used and accepted in the European educational and training community. It can be described as the process of disseminating and exploiting the results of projects with a view to optimising their value, strengthening their impact, transferring them, integrating them in a sustainable way and using them actively in systems and practices at local, regional, national and European levels.
