cover art for Beyond the Breakthrough featuring Paul Van Dun

On this week’s episode of the Talking Tech Transfer podcast, we are joined by Paul Van Dun, the general manager of Leuven Research and Development, the tech transfer office of KU Leuven, which has a unique framework that allows faculty to generate income for their labs without incorporating spinouts.

Van Dun tell us more about this framework, as well as his vision of having universities ranked based on impact, what changes he has seen during his 20-year-long career and how one of his favourite spinouts helped revitalise the region’s historical strengths in bicycle production.
