De-risking research on target animals/species
We are in a unique position where Ghent University can also finance proof-of-concept studies with its in-house Industrial Research Fund.
At this level, too, our Faculty of Veterinary Medicine plays a pivotal role. At our Faculty of Veterinary Medicine innovations can be tested in our own facilities and on the target species. This is an important element for de-risking our technologies and increasing their value for further development in collaboration with our industrial partners.
The combined results of basic research and proof-of-concept studies are a solid basis for new IP and patent applications.
