Yellow Research is a Dutch consultancy & training company geared to advising universities with regard to the third money flow and how to transfer knowledge from academia to industry. An important part of the work we do focusses on research grants strategies. Currently this is dominated by the growing importance of attracting funding through the European Research Council for frontier research. This work brings us in contact with top universities across Europe. Besides preparing researchers in thinking about high-gain/high-risk projects, we are involved in the discussions with representatives of university management in the development of strategies to focus research staff on excellent research as well as strategies with regard to tenure tracks.
Yellow Research is owned by: Lotte Jaspers, Jet van Dijk, Mette Skraastad and Aya van den Kroonenberg.
