The Healthy Ageing Campus and the SME cooperative are attending the visit of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima in Schleswig-Holstein and Hamburg this Thursday and next Friday.
The focus is mainly on Thursday where the central subject of the day is life sciences and health.

The ambition of the Healthy Ageing Campus to strengthen cooperation with northern Germany paid off by the beginning 2014, when a letter of intent with Gesundheitswirtschaft Nordwest was signed. In June 2014, the Campus opened a office in Klinikum Oldenburg, from which a comprehensive market evaluation was carried out within six months. This has resulted in many warm contacts with institutions and companies, what increases matchmaking across border.

From the Healthy Ageing Business Cooperative U.A. there is great interest in these developments on working closely together with Northern Germany. "Internationally we are pretty well known for our specific knowledge and expertise," said Ton Vries, director Syncom BV "working more closely together with Northern Germany will definitely result in interesting projects together."
