Sponsor / Support Research Projects

UMONS is regularly looking for companies to support research projects.

This type of collaboration allows socio-economic investors to:

  • contribute to the research activities of UMONS without any financial commitment
  • monitor and advise the work of our researchers and eventually become a partner for the exploitation of research results.


FNRS Projects

These are four-year fundamental research projects (initial contract of 2 years, renewable once) with a focus on industry (FRIA) or with an intended short- or medium-term societal impact (FRESH).

In some cases, industrial or non-academic references are necessary

  • For FRIA when defining short-term applications
  • For FRESH to justify the societal impact of the project (a reference person with significant activity in the field, outside of the academic world)

Sponsoring a Win4Spin-off project

Win4Spin-off projects aim to set up a spin-off over a period of 2 to 3 years.

The sponsor of a Win4Spin-off can be a person or a company and must demonstrate their contribution to the project from the point of view of the market, technology, …

The sponsor is invited to attend 3 or 4 meetings a year. Sponsoring the Win4Spin-off allows the sponsor to follow an innovative project and contribute to the editing of the future spin-off.
