The Economic Board

The Economic Board is a driver of innovation in the region of Arnhem – Nijmegen, with Wageningen. As a Triple Helix collaboration among government, knowledge institutes and the business community, we encourage and connect economic activity and innovations in the key sectors of Food, Health and Energy and their cross-overs. We communicate about the exceptional potential of this region and we connect parties.

We can provide information about the innovative strength and regional economy and on subsidies and permits. Furthermore, we encourage (international) parties to get to know our region and we use our vast network to bring parties into contact with each other. Get in touch.
