Balancing business in the heart of Europe
There’s no innovation without experimentation. That’s why we make space not only for growing companies, but also for growing ideas in the form of pilot projects and business model experiments. Room to think, try, fail, learn and iterate in low-regulation zones. Our planning policies prioritize the economic use of space and the growth of our tech industries. This is done through:
- Mixed economic development - so-called interweaving
- Developing attractive and effective business parks of tomorrow
- The development of visible hubs for innovative ecosystems. These hubs attract talent and provide for both start-up and scale-up tech needs.
