Corporate Director Value Creation - Wageningen University and Research, Netherlands

Corporate Director Value Creation, Wageningen University & Research, Netherlands

Sebastiaan Berendse coordinates and develops WUR’s activities to generate impact and value added for society. Value creation is the third core task of Wageningen University and Research (WUR) and focuses on generating impact through application in practice.

His team is responsible for startup policy (including StartLife and the student incubator), knowledge transfer and IP services, shared research facilities and Wageningen Campus development, the Science Shop and Wageningen Dialogues. His passion is to have a personal impact on global challenges (e.g. circular, protein & energy transitions) by using his business administrative background (RSM Erasmus & Stockholm School of Economics).

Sebastiaan previously worked in consulting, research & education (Delft University of Technology) and the Ministry of Economic Affairs (coordinator of the Innovation Attaché network). He has been working for more than 15 years in the field of business development, valorisation, innovation clusters, start-up and scale up support and international cooperation in R and D.

Research results only have an effect when they are applied within society. That is why Wageningen University and Research cooperates closely with companies, governments and civil society to ensure those results can provide added value. We realise this at the Wageningen Campus, where we work together in research projects, transfer knowledge, share our facilities, help start-ups in their initial development and design solutions tailored to global issues.
