The Innovation Center is the one-stop-shop to start and guide your innovation. Together we enhance and accelerate your innovative idea by using our multidisciplinary knowhow and expertise and our network of trusted partners.
We are the starting point for developing and implementing healthcare innovations. By guiding individual applications, we have insight into common needs, thresholds and developments in the innovation process. We use these understandings to proactively increase the innovative power of the UMCG.
Together with you, we aim to create societal impact through implementation, education, start-ups, license agreements, industry sponsored research agreements, and innovation communities.
