Crowdhelix Open Innovation Platform

University of Twente has recently acquired access to Crowdhelix, an Open Innovation platform that forges links between researchers and companies. 

Crowdhelix platform

Crowdhelix is an Open Innovation platform that forges links between an international network of excellent researchers and innovating companies, so that they can plan and deliver pioneering collaborative projects. It hosts an active user community of over 6920 research and innovation professionals, coming from 491 leading institutions and innovating companies, spreading over 51 countries.

Crowdhelix's custom-built collaboration platform hosts topic-focused international communities called ‘Helixes’, which are often coordinated by leading research organisations in the respective fields. Helixes map directly to Horizon Europe’s Clusters and Mission areas.

Users can proactively post and respond to collaboration opportunities within the Helixes, and target specific Horizon Europe funding calls drawn directly from the EU’s database.
