AMSTERDAM – Scientists who want to start a business can now get help from the Centre for Enterprise and Innovation (CvOI) in Utrecht. Students and business owners looking for scientists or information can also turn to the centre, the University of Utrecht announced.

A spokesperson for the university said it was a unique initiative to bring science, business and study together. "Small and medium-sized businesses can come to the CvOI with questions for knowledge institutes."

"Students and scientists can take advantage of business areas, financing and assistance in drawing up a business plan," the spokesperson said.

The CvOI will also be organising the "Start impulse Utrecht" project, to track down and provide guidance to students and researchers with entrepreneurial talent. The centre also offers 50 workstations for starting entrepreneurs.

The centre is a collaboration between the university, college of applied science, municipality, province and the University Medical Centre of Utrecht and is part of the Science Park Utrecht, the new name of the university's De Uithof campus.
