A large number of education and research institutes as well as companies in our region are leaders in Europe when it comes to innovations in the sectors Agro-Food, Life Sciences & Health, High Tech Systems and Materials, Energy and Environmental Technology. But what truly sets East Netherlands apart from other comparable regions in Europe?
‘Smart & sustainable industries’ and ‘Concepts for a healthy life’.
Our focus areas encompass innovations in the fields of Smart Manufacturing and Materials, Smart Food Production, Circular & Biobased Production, Smart Energy, MedTech, Smart Health, Prevention (e.g. Healthy Brain), and Personalised Health & Nutrition.
The European Commission stimulates innovation by providing access to funding and other resources. But the competition in Europe for these resources is fierce, with a growing number of companies and other organisations all vying for support. Ever more the reason to turn the spotlight on the unique qualifications of our region of East Netherlands. In the Innovation Profile East Netherlands we offer a clear profile of what sets us apart from other European regions.
The two flagships of East Netherlands
The Innovation Profile is organised under two ‘flagships,’ each with three separate focus areas. Companies and other organisations that choose to develop innovations under either one of these two headers can count on strong support and profiling in front of the EU. They will be the embodiment of the power of innovation in East Netherlands.
