Life Sciences

Groningen is fast becoming the knowledge center for the field of health and healthier living, in the Netherlands and internationally. This is partly due to the focus on the areas of Healthy Ageing and Sustainable Society, policy spearheads at the University of Groningen (RUG), Hanze University of Applied Sciences, Groningen, the university hospital UMCG and the regional government. This region contains a concentration of knowledge, experience and inventiveness, where a host of smaller institutions, research institutes, specialized Life Science companies and technical innovators make significant contributions.
