Research - technology - business

Within the LCRP program, not only academic clinical research is performed, but also valorisation and services. In addition to joint research projects, contract research and services are provided in domains that are closely related to the research programs and academic-clinical/technological expertise and know-how within the LCRP. The various possible services that the LCRP can provide include:

  • clinical testing
  • validation, among others compliance FDA/CE
  • in-hospital testing facilities
  • providing research infrastructure, including dissecting room
  • supplying biobank collections and datasets
  • ...

Through cooperation of the LCRP with the regional life sciences and health care ecosystem, there are even more possibilities at this level. For example, the UHasselt Biomedical Research Institute has a number of technology platforms and the LCRP is part of the Limburg CareVille testing ground. There is also close collaboration with the organization LifeTechValley, which offers a helping hand for (start-up) companies with a focus on 'happy aging'. Coupled to this,the life science incubator, BioVille, was opened in Diepenbeek (Belgium) in 2010 where numerous life sciences and health care companies are currently housed, with which the LCRP has a good cooperation.
