Universiteit Hasselt - Knowledge in action


The most direct approach to working together with Hasselt University is to set up joint research that can lead to new industrial applications. In addition to long-term strategic base research, collaborations of a shorter duration are also possible.

Research expertise
Does your company need specific knowledge?
If your company needs short-term advice or analysis in a particular field, you can arrange scientific services or contract research.
The research infrastructure will then be deployed to provide you with an answer within a short time frame.

Patents and licenses
Are you interested in an active patent held by our knowledge institutions?
Patent databases can show you what research results Hasselt University has patented. As a company, you can use these findings by f.ex. obtaining a licence.

Vacancies and internships
The TTO will be happy to circulate details of your vacancy among final year students and alumni.
We will also be happy to help if your company can offer internship placements for students or if you have interesting research topics for graduates who wish to start a PhD.

Programmes for professionals
Are you looking for extra training for you or your employees?
Take a look at the growing range of courses offered by the  Hasselt University School of Expert Education (SEE). These courses for ambitious professionals range from inspiring lectures to intense two-year study programmes.

Innovation financing
Are you looking for funding for your innovation process?
Collaboration between a company and a knowledge institution usually qualifies for subsidies from the Flemish Government, such as the subsidies from VLAIO. The TTO will be happy to guide you through the range of possibilities.

For more information, you can make direct contact with the TTO employee in your field.
