Xeltis’ long-standing academic research partner, the University of Technology Eindhoven (TU/e), has been awarded with seven Vidi grants for their top-quality research. Of the seven grants, three have been awarded to TU/e Institute for Complex Molecular Systems (ICMS), which is led by Xeltis’ scientific advisor Professor Bert Meijer. Professor Patricia Dankers, a member of the ICMS team, received one of the grants specifically for her research on biomedical applications of supramolecular materials.

“We can directly account for the value of TU/e’s research as their increased scientific understanding of ETR provides valuable insights on how to further expand and build value for Xeltis’ technology platform,” commented Martijn Cox, Xeltis Co-Founder and CTO.

Xeltis collaborates with TU/e and other academic research institutions on several publicly funded research projects, such as the InSiteVx consortium led by Professor Dankers. Scientific cooperation projects on ETR enable Xeltis to leverage the deep scientific understanding of academic research and to combine it with the company’s robust knowledge of technology applications.

The Innovational Research Incentives Scheme, Vidi, is a grant program for experienced researchers supported by the Dutch government to help develop their own innovative line of research. TU/e has been recently named the second strongest university in the world for research collaboration with industry by CWTS Leiden Ranking.
