Transforming the higher education sector for socio-economic impact

Since 2012, we have been supporting and enabling our community of passionate institutions to become more innovative, improve their external engagement, and increase their social impact.

As researchers ourselves, everything we do is evidence-based and applied in practice. We hear the needs of stakeholders on all sides, which informs our latest research projects and fuels the services we provide our community.

We offer a centralised source of skills-development, networking and support for individuals and organisations involved in university-industry collaboration, entrepreneurial universities and technology transfer.

Our multidisciplinary team

Our team brings together diverse experiences and perspectives across different disciplines and cultural contexts that enable us to truly understand a broad range of engagement challenges. Whilst our roots are in Amsterdam and our team is based here, we support institutions across the world.
