Research to Business
What are R2B projects all about?
Research groups and researchers that are looking to turn their research into a business and commercialise their research-based ideas and innovations can apply for funding from Business Finland through the Research to Business (R2B) programme.
Who should stay up to date with R2B projects?
We provide investors with information about potential investment opportunities and help them connect with researchers from different fields.
We keep external stakeholders in the loop with the latest R2B projects.
We offer company partners access to the latest knowledge and innovations to support their business.
Business developers: We are periodically looking for business developers to support the commercialisation of innovations born out of research. They will be tasked with exploring and building pathways to commercialisation. At the moment there are no open positions.
