Phortos Consultants provides valorisation services to academic institutions and private parties, in many cases through public private partnerships. We provide all necessary services to develop scientific discoveries towards sustainable propositions and ventures. All our activities are underpinned by the Phortos Consultants ‘CUBIC’ methodology. A particular area of interest and expertise is the application of innovative semantic technologies. For example, Phortosconsultants is actively involved in DTL’s FAIR data initiative to make research data Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable. In addition Phortosconsultants project manages the ODEX project, a Dutch eScience Center and DTL initiative.
Our customers come in many different shapes and sizes. They range from individual scientists looking to participate in one of our ‘un’conferences, start-up ventures in need of sales support to academic institutions in search of a sustainable valorisation approach.
Our services are as varied as our clients and specifically tailored to their needs. We group our services in three areas: Vision Tranformation, Valorisation Services and Venture Development.
We have worked with DTL for many years in different capacities and were instrumental in founding Euretos, a DTL partner providing the Euretos Knowledge Platform truly enabling better answers to research questions faster.
The CUBIC Unconference is an integral part of the Phortos Consultants methodology to Connect Universities, Businesses, Investors and Customers. The aim of the CUBIC Unconference is to catalyze scientific vision transformation and explore the key steps towards their realization. We believe strongly that bringing the right people together and releasing their creative potential can provide the catalyst for change that would otherwise not exist. We have (co)organized and moderated Unconferences for the Dutch eScience Center, Elixir and DTL.
