Leiden University Medical Center (LUMC) is introducing the LUMC Donation Investment Fund I and II, funds aimed at funding unique scientific research. The goal is for new scientific inventions to reach patients faster.
Through the LUMC Donation Investment Fund, donors offer initial financial support to promising research projects. Projects that could use the acceleration through funding. Once a project has successfully led to a product and can be introduced to the market, the second phase begins. These same donors, as well as other interested parties, can then invest in a new company or spin-off to be set up.
