ABOUT US

INNOVATION PROFILE EAST NETHERLANDS

The differentiating power of innovation for our region.

 

East Netherlands is ‘Smart & Healthy.’ 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? The Innovation Profile East Netherlands gives us the answer.

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.

TOPFIT IMPACT PROGRAMME

CONCEPTS FOR A HEALTHY LIFE

 

Under the name TopFit Impact Programme, the  University of Twente,  Wageningen University & Researc,  Radboud University and  RadboudUMC join together in an impact programme aimed at preventing and reducing disease and the burden of disease.

 

FRAMEWORK

Much progress has been made in recent years in understanding disease processes and the development of new treatment methods. At the same time, the realization that many diseases will remain incurable for the foreseeable future grows. Through smart integration of innovative technologies and knowledge about nutrition and health we can be one step ahead of disease and its burdens.

These integral solutions mean that there will be an ever more personal approach in healthcare. The payoff is a maximum increase in the quality of life of patients and the best perspective on affordable healthcare in an aging society. The goal of the TopFit programme is to contribute to controlling and limiting the cost of healthcare in the future, without making concessions to the quality of life of patients.

 

IMPACT

 

TopFit aspires to be a leading health impact programme on three levels: society & health, innovation & (regional) economy and science & technology. Therefore, the researchers work together with key partners in the east of the Netherlands.
