Paul Althuis is director of the two holdings of TU Delft: Delft Enterprises and TU Delft Services. He is actively involved in the different innovative ecosystems of TU Delft, i.e. The Green Village, YES!Delft and RoboHouse. He has long term experience with the set up and acquisition of (inter)national multistakeholder projects. For nearly 20 years Paul was the director of the Innovation & Impact Centre of TU Delft and as such responsible for technology transfer and business creation within the university.
Paul thinks universities should play a leading role in developing long-term innovation ecosystems and wants to see TU Delft Campus become even more of an impact and creativity hotspot. The spin-outs of the university contribute to achieving this goal. Paul is actively involved in supporting a number of spin-outs in the Delft Enterprises portfolio.
