Student Startups

To entrepreneurial students and recent graduates, WUR offers information on starting a business, incubator facilities and an extensive network of experts and research institutions to collaborate on an idea or concept. But is the idea really yours in order to market? Who decides what happens to your internship or project result? With whom to share profits, if any? In other words, who owns the intellectual property rights (IPR)?

See more information on the intellectual property regulations if you are a student. If you want to learn more about entrepreneurship and/or already start your own business, you can visit the student incubator StartHub Wageningen, intended for students, PHDs and recent graduates.

A Wageningen University & Research startup (WUR startup) is a newly registered company (CoC registration date not older than five years) founded by staff, alumni and/or students.

To WUR startups, WUR provides a WUR startup Label that visualises the relationship with WUR. This label may be used by the young companies in their communication.
