BlackGEM telescope array

BlackGEM telescope array

When neutron stars and black holes collide, gravitational waves are released and a hot luminous ring of gas is created. BlackGEM is a series of telescopes that helps researchers to more accurately determine where a collision has occurred.

Current treatments for cornea damage depend on stem cells in the patient's own healthy eye. This project will develop a novel regenerative technology to convert patient's skin and mouth cells into cornea stem cells to restore vision.

Ecological Microbiology


The ERC synergy project MARIX studies marine redox transitions to understand how they remove toxic ammonium and methane. It combines fieldwork, lab experiments and modelling to explore new microbial pathways and their environmental impact.

What can Radboud Innovation Science do for you?

RIS supports researchers in setting up and carrying out consortium projects with both public and private partners, and helps at the end of the project to achieve optimal use of the results. Next to that, RIS advises on patent applications, licences and spinoff creation. RIS works closely together with the central valorisation department, Radboud Innovation.
