Welcome to the Podcast Business of Collaboration created by Collabwith. Collabwith is a SaaS and digital platform that enables innovation ecosystems to connect startups, academics, and businesses in a matchmaking meets marketplace setting. I am Jara Pascual, founder and CEO of Collabwith and I will be your host.

Today, you will hear our guest Bart Groeneveld, he is a Project Manager Outreach at the University of Amsterdam talking about how he is helping academics to explain science, maths research and physics with art projects with creative artists. Bart is ensuring that the artists keep the integrity of the research, and as well that academics are open to explain their research in artistic way.

I was surprised to listen how he is getting funding for these projects and how he is increasing the knowledge transfer projects from university to industry together with public and private organizations and high school students as well. Bart is Dutch is a researcher and academic, besides he is coordinating public events to bridge the gap between science and society at the University of Amsterdam.

Drh. Groeneveld emphasizes the need for collaboration from different leads and stakeholders to create innovation. Bringing science to society is a matter of how this is communicated to be able to reach people and create impact by knowledge usage and by creating different creative programs. Also, he mentions the importance that the Universities do not cut the budget for communication, as without communicating what they are researching and implementing, the science cannot have the required impact on society.

Drh. Bart Groeneveld talks about and gives practical examples of how he is working, as a professor at the University of Amsterdam (UVA), to bring science to schools, from primary schools to secondary schools in the Netherlands. He explains what innovation for him is as a professor as well; he talks about how he is implementing art in STEM subjects and how important it is to use creativity in science.
