Universiteit Hasselt - Knowledge in action


Research projects mostly result in the development of technologies. Within the Business Centre department, we stimulate and support researchers to further develop these technologies and to commercialize them in spin-off companies. Currently, two spin-offs originated from IMOB: DriveSimSolutions and ABEONA Consult.

Furthermore, we gladly assist external partners in the implementation of their business plan. IMOB hereby acts as a R&D partner that integrates innovative and complementary technologies in the partners’ range of products. An example of such a cooperation is the Digital Driving Pass. Together with Motosmarty, IMOB designed a platform that encourages drivers to drive smarter, safer, cheaper and more efficiently. The application registers the driving behaviour of individuals and gives them personal feedback. IMOB developed the scoring algorithm behind the app.
