Amsterdam UMC facilitates and stimulates interaction between academic researchers and external stakeholders to drive the transition of scientific discoveries into innovations and insights that benefit society in various ways, a process called valorization.

Innovation Exchange Amsterdam (IXA) is the valorization center of Amsterdam UMC, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (VU), University of Amsterdam (UvA) and Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (HvA). IXA offers support throughout the entire valorization process and can identify the best valorization strategy for your innovation or technology.

IXA’s services cover activities ranging from the patenting of inventions and negotiating research and licensing contracts with industry, to creating start-up companies based on UMC technologies and negotiating research collaborations with industry.
