The Netherlands holds a leading position across the world when it comes to innovative potential and strength. In the European Union our country is in the top 5, while globally it is in the top 10. Its impressive rank can be partly attributed to the close public-private collaboration between knowledge institutions, governments and businesses. Many innovations are the product of scientific research and education. Delft University of Technology – the largest and oldest technical university in our country – plays a huge role in this respect. This is demonstrated by its large number of patents, for example. At present, there are almost 2500 patents worldwide that mention Delft University of Technology as the applicant. There are numerous different ways to get these innovations out into the world, including licensing the patent, selling it to a market player, entering into a research contract or founding a start-up.
