TOPFIT ThinkEast Netherlands

Everyone Top Fit
Growing old in good health, who doesn't want that?

That starts with prevention: a fit and active life helps us stay healthy for longer. That's where we at TOPFIT want to help. By joining forces in the East Netherlands, we look for ways to make and keep us healthier.

Our mission is to promote health. We want to achieve this by bringing together new knowledge and activities in the East Netherlands. By inspiring each other and learning from each other. By sharing and scaling up success stories.
The TOPFIT partners therefore seek cooperation with each other, with municipalities, entrepreneurs and like-minded local and regional networks.


TOPFIT is a strategic partnership in the field of prevention and health promotion in the East Netherlands region. We want to exchange knowledge and bring together ways to improve lifestyle and health, with the ultimate goals of inspiration, upscaling and implementation.

TOPFIT is not legally a separate legal entity, but acts on behalf of the cooperating partners. The organisational structure consists of a core team, a steering committee and an executive office. The permanent partners each delegate a representative to the core team and to the steering committee.

Partners are: University of Twente, Saxion, HAN, Rijnstate, Medisch Spectrum Twente (MST), Ziekenhuis Groep Twente (ZGT), ROC van Twente and Landstede.
