University of Twente aims to create impact in society and economy by connecting talent, knowledge and facilities to external actors. Strategic Business Development (SBD) at the UT ambitions to be the prime support in realising this connection, ultimately contributing to UT’s academic excellence.
SBD supports the whole UT community in connecting our excellent research to external needs, ultimately favouring both.
SBD works at the strategic and operational level; rather than as a separate UT-service. SBD means to work as a direct extension of the research organizational structure. The SBD core team consists of UT staff with a strong connection to research: managing directors of research institutes and grant support staff, together with capacity for business development, communication, external relationships and legal support.
