For researchers in Leiden, there is a long tradition of partnering with local Leiden or Dutch companies. These are celebrated across a broad spectrum of relationships, from informal connections, shared studentships and bilateral R&D collaborations to extensive consortia arrangements with complex public/private funding.

Luris would like to continue to provide support to expand these relationships and is looking forward to exploring how such connections can be created or strengthened. One such initiative is the TechTalk programme.


Together with the Leiden Bio Science Park Foundation, 'Centrum Bioscience en Diagnostiek' (CBD) of the University of Applied Sciences Leiden and LUMC 'Boerhaave Nascholing', we hosted a number of TechTalks - aimed at bringing the research community together, whether based in business or in academia.
