Northern Knowledge (by Business Generator Groningen)


About the partner

Business Generator Groningen (BG) assists in transferring the knowledge generated at the UMCG and RUG to companies by initiating collaborations/licensing opportunities. The process of transferring knowledge involves multiple steps and BG assists in each of them (e.g. screening of ideas/obtaining ip protection/identifying partners or customers/negotiating agreements). BG also supports starting entrepreneurs and companies with strategy development, business planning, organizational structuring and financial evaluations.

Role in FBD

BG engages SMEs in the hinterlands, sets up programs and delivers services based on the tools co-developed within the project. BG links relevant organizational departments of its three knowledge institutes and engages as much of the hinterland in its wide region with Northern Knowledge.
