The systematic organisation of commercial research activities and the splitting of the various companies within a holding company structure offer many benefits:
Seed bed for commercial research
There is one clear organisation within which commercial research activities are brought together. This creates a seed bed for innovative companies in the area of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences.
Since all the subsidiaries within the holding company are clearly distinguishable, this provides transparency. It is simple to add more companies. Furthermore, a holding company structure ensures a large degree of financial and legal stability.
The subsidiaries help each other. They can take advantage of the infrastructure of Maastricht UMC+. A Shared Service Center also means that the subsidiaries can focus on their own innovative product and/or service. Knowledge can be efficiently exchanged between Maastricht UMC+ and the business community in Limburg. The clustering of skills provides synergy and a high level of efficiency.
