EnTranCe has been located at the Zernike Campus since October 2015. It is an energy innovation workspace where new sustainable energy technologies are tested. EnTranCe is an initiative from Hanze University of Applied Sciences Groningen, University of Groningen and the Energy Academy Europe. It is an accessible organisation, where students from the knowledge institutes collaborate with the business community on innovations within the energy industry.
EnTranCe offers much more than technology: innovations are directly linked to the existing and future market. Startups have the opportunity to expand their business models using experts from the education and industry sectors (for example lawyers, economists, marketing and financial experts, business experts and behavioral scientists). Good ideas are translated directly into successful product-market combinations.
