The lndustrial Research Fund (lOF) of KU Leuven forms a bridge between strategic basic research, technological innovations and industrial collaborations. Based on cooperations with KU Leuven research groups, the University Hospital and different stakeholders from industry and society, we aim to broaden our valorization portfolio and to increase the transfer of knowledge to the market. We have a team of more than 30 experienced innovation managers involved in the development of practical and innovative technological solutions based on expertise and infrastructure of the research groups within KU Leuven. We are looking for an innovation manager to initiate, develop and support the valorisation strategy around the Functional Nano-scale imaging (FUNCI-Nano) platform available at the Leuven Nanocenter and which is part of research groups from the Department of Chemistry and the Center for Surface Chemistry and Catalysis.
You will manage the innovation/exploitation of the patent portfolio and novel developments in our imaging technologies. Additionally, you will propose our imaging platform to clients in industry and create a program in which both industry and the research groups are strengthened. Finally, you will be responsible for the scouting and acquisition of EU and national projects with a high economic finality.
