The University Twente, the local Province Overijssel and a group of five private investors have agreed to work together in a public-private partnership to commercialize inventions at the micro- and nanotechnology research institute MESA+. This partnership will take the legal form of a private limited company with the name “MESA+ International Ventures” (MIV). Micro- and nanotechnology are promising new technologies that have the potential to revolutionize existing industries with new products and services. Due to the high-tech multidisciplinary character and sometimes disruptive impact, implementing micro- and nanotechnology is difficult without the right partners and environment. Having MIV based around MESA+, which is specifically designed for micro- and nanotechnology-based solution platforms, brings together the right partners, environment and approach to successfully scout and implement micro- and nanotechnology.
