Valorisation Grant for intervertebral disc prosthesis
Professor Keita Ito received the Valorisation Grant of STW just before Christmas. The Valorisation Grant helps academic entrepreneurs with their startup companies to make the step from idea to product.
The grant knows two types of awardings; Phase-1 and Phase-2. Phase-1 is for a feasibility study while Phase-2 is for the valorization phase, in which the first steps are taken on the valorization trajectory.
Ito received a Phase-1 awarding in the amount of €25.000,- for an intervertebral disk prosthesis.
