Commit2Data has developed a comprehensive valorization program. This program will consist of several separate but connected parts. The purpose of this program is to support the Commit2Data projects and project members in their valorization process and give the individual participants the opportunity to enhance their knowledge and skills to better valorize their research. An important part of the Commit2Data valorization program is a series of masterclasses. We herewith announce the first of these masterclasses. We happily invite project consortium members to participate.

Masterclass I - March 3rd 2020

!This event in only accessible for participants of C2D projects

We all know about the importance of valorisation by now, but successful valorisation initiatives originate from the creativity, curiosity and motivation of individual researchers, which will lead to interesting research results. What will be the next step towards gaining impact with these results in society? To answer this question Commit2Data invites you to a series of 3 full day masterclasses on ‘How to Valorise’:

The masterclasses will follow the 7 step approach outlined in the book ‘How to Valorise your research’ by Alain le Loux, Bart Brouwer and Rogier de Haan as described below.

Each masterclass will consist of an inspiring keynote, a lecture on the topic and workshop to use the knowledge in the field. The last part of each masterclass will consist of a training.

March 3rd we will start with the first masterclass on Valorisation opportunities, IP management and team creation. Part 2: Value creation and funding the dream will follow on April 14th 2020 and finally part 3: Starting the business, networking and sales will be on June 9th 2020.


Please register for this masterclass by sending an email to before February 21st, 2020. Please note that this masterclass is only accessible for members of the Commit 2 Data consortia and if less than 12 participants have registered we will postpone this session.
