Our dream is a world in which academia collaborates smoothly with non-academic partners from industry and government. We believe that academia, industry and governments will all benefit from stronger collaborations. With the services we offer with IDfuse, we mainly focus on the support of academia to find the best way towards societal impact. With the Sciencefinder, we turn that around by offering a platform where the outside world can more easily find academic work that’s relevant to them!

In our view the first step in making the connection between non-academic parties and academia, is to know where you can find the relevant expertise. Our aim with the ScienceFinder is exactly this, to make it as easy as possible to find relevant Dutch academic expertise for projects you are working on.

ScienceFinder was created in 2019 and pre-launched at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit in The Hague.
