Making the Northern Netherlands smarter and better – together

You and I, we are the Northern Netherlands. And it’s time for us to look into the mirror. To be honest about what we see in our reflection. To acknowledge our strengths and weaknesses. To dare face the challenges ahead. To step it up and find out how our region can become more innovative. So we can learn to do better – together.


This is not your average networking event. At this high-profile gathering, entrepreneurs, universities, civil society organizations and regional authorities from the Northern Netherlands are joined by European organizations and partners from other European regions. From the Basque Country in Spain to Östergötland in Sweden. After all, cross-border cooperation is indispensable in furthering bottom-up innovation processes. Let’s share, be inspired and get to work.
