Making the difference

In order to influence policy makers of regional governments and institutes, Life Science and Medical Technology SMEs in the Northern part of the Netherlands are uniting in the Healthy Ageing Business Cooperative

The cooperative develops solutions to meet shared challenges. Collective training, combined purchasing of laboratory equipment and materials, and shared visits to international fairs and congresses are some of the current examples of efficiency measures.

Together, the cooperative SMEs developed research-, development- and supply-chains that result in efficient innovations, i.e. in the field biomarker validation, biomaterial development and 3D imaging and printing.
