Healthy Ageing Campus Netherlands brings together all facilities, businesses and researchers at and around the UMCG, which fall within the fields of Food & (e) Health, Biomedical Technology and Pharma. The Campus organization, with the aid of the available valorisation infrastructure, presents the existing innovation chains.

This is a building with office space that can be used by researchers and entrepreneurs on a project basis (flexible). They can check in whenever they want and leave again at any time.
