The founder of ScienceWorks. With twenty years of experience at Erasmus University and at Science Alliance, you may state rightly that “knowledge transfer” has become the second nature of Frank.

At ScienceWorks he developed several measurement systems in order to measure knowledge transfer (Valorisatieranking) and science based regional development.
