Life Cooperative

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

Making the difference

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.

"Our goal is to make the Northern Life Sciences sector sustainable; through the business cooperative we expect to achieve in the coming years between twenty and thirty percent growth in the sector. That is a significant percentage, but it indicates our ambitions. "
