Public-private consortium projects
IMM takes part in various public-private partnerships, both in large research consortia, as well as on a one-by-one basis. These collaborations enable us to involve the private sector in our research, resulting in a direct pathway from science to market. We work together with many small to medium-sized enterprises (SME) and corporations like Airbus, Akzo Nobel, DSM, Heineken, Philips, LG electronics, NXP, Shell and Unilever.
Working with Business & Industry
In addition, the large-scale research infrastructure of the IMM has resulted in business relations with medium-sized technology-oriented enterprises in the Nijmegen area (Novio Tech Campus).
The IMM research group Analytical Chemistry is directly involved in COAST, a network of Dutch Analytical Chemistry industries. COAST's mission is to strengthen analytical sciences in Netherlands uniting R&D, human capital and infrastructure. In cooperation with COAST, Radboud University and the University of Amsterdam developed a challenging honours master track. Very good and highly motivated students can apply to work together with industrial COAST partners. More information on the COAST website.
