ScienceWorks supports the transfer of scientific knowledge to society from its office in The Hague. Our experts have been advisors of governments, high tech businesses and universities in many countries. ScienceWorks has access to international networks of experts in the field of value creation and innovation policy, including the Technopolicy Network. Our approach is to establish a well designed team of advisors for every assignment. In doing so we may make use of the experts of our advisory board.
The founder of ScienceWorks. With twenty years of experience at Erasmus University and at Science Alliance, you may state rightly that “knowledge transfer” has become the second nature of Frank. In this period he founded almost ten organisations to structure the exchange of scientific knowledge, including the European leading organization on knowledge transfer, ASTP and The network of knowledge regions Technopolicy. At ScienceWorks he developed several measurement systems in order to measure knowledge transfer (Valorisatieranking) and science based regional development. The most recent network concerns AESIS, an organization that measures and promotes the impact of science. His motto: “One discovery may create a thousand new realities”
