Roles in the project
The Research Association (FMV) will contribute to the extension stage as a Communication Partner by planning, organising, implementing and evaluating trainings and seminars conducted via an internet-based learning environment. Most importantly, the web platform www.biiugi.eu which already contains matching services and a virtual incubator will be enhanced by adding an online-seminar tool as a third component. All actors in the intervention process, most importantly mentors and advisors, will be able to use this platform for professional collaboration and qualification. In light of this, FMV expects a collection of valuable information, documents and experiences resulting out of the cooperation on the platform and will develop a database framework so that other institutions are able to access the data.

About us
The FMV, established in 1995, is a non-profit association working closely with researchers of universities and research institutes on one hand as well as SMEs on the other hand in order to allow the researchers to transfer their academic results to the market and successfully commercialise them. The aim of FMV is to act as a mediator between science and economy and therefore facilitate the cooperation between the two sectors.
Our network comprises professionals from various branches like business and technology, whom we offer support and advice by individual coaching and training, to help them realize their idea and translate the concept to the market as innovative product or application. FMV acts as facilitator for the partners through networks, and as contact point for professional support on funding and project development.

Services we provide include training seminars such as;

  • Management & Leadership (teambuilding, coaching)
  • Communication & Personal skills (potential analysis, communication model)
  • Specific University relevant topics (scientific writing, patenting, marketing)

We also provide coaching services such as;

  • Individual coaching with experienced business specialists
  • Product concept, market analysis & strategy development
  • Creating business partnerships & finding resources

The majority of our clients are operating within the field of Life Science (e.g. Biotechnology), due to the nature of the University focus in the region, however we also have experience with many companies outside of this field (e.g. ICT, Electrical Engineering). Since its founding, the association has directly been involved with over 100 start-up & SME companies in the region, and has conducted hundreds of successful seminars.
