What is valorisation?

What is valorisation?

Over the last decade there is an ongoing debate about the societal impact and utilisation of academic research. This is also called ‘valorisation of knowledge’ or ‘technology transfer’ and can be defined as:

The process of value-creation out of knowledge, by making this knowledge suitable and available for economic or societal utilisation and to translate this into high-potential products, services, processes and industrial activity.

Valorisation is not just about ‘money’, but about impact that can be created through the transfer of scientific knowledge. Apart from commercialising your invention through a spin-off company, patent, or license, there are many ways to make impact, for example trough the transfer of knowledge to healthcare organisations, by making knowledge and expertise available for other (societal) organisations and by communicating your knowledge to the general public.
