Are you a researcher in scientific computing applications, and looking for new ways to commercialize your ideas by launching for example a new innovative start-up company? In that case, feel free to contact me at the following e-mail address: , in order to organize some video-calls together for example!

I would in fact be more than happy to provide you with valuable advices and insight on how to approach the relevant market and potential customers, based on my own personal business experience as a freelance consultant for scientific startup companies such as, and more recently with the European Materials Modeling Council as well as some of the projects it is helping to coordinate, such as the VIMMP and Marketplace EU projects (in collaboration with Goldbeck Consulting Ltd.)

For sources of inspiration with regard to new start-up ideas, please have a look at the following examples of private companies active in scientific computing product development displayed throughout the remainder of this webpage! The list below could also prove resourceful for young researchers in academia, looking for new long-term employment opportunities of a different and commercial nature. In this case, I advise you to consult regularly the "Careers" sections in each one of the company links provided below. I also recommend consulting the job listings on both the Psi-k and websites, although the positions advertised there are for the most part of academic nature.

Please note that the below list of companies only covers start-ups and SMEs active in scientific computing. Of course, there are also numerous large trans-national corporations in the petroleum, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, engineering and materials industrial sectors that are heavily involved in modeling and simulation-based R&D. Some examples include of course Shell, Pfizer, BASF, Solvay, Bosch, Dow Chemicals, St Gobain, Siemens, etc... The listing of all such large corporations falls however well beyond the scope of the present webpage.
