Health Valley is a network of universities, healthcare institutions, companies and governments that stimulates technological innovation in healthcare. Together the network partners share knowledge and set up innovative projects. The aim is to enhance healthcare and to stimulate the economy. The Health Valley-network started in the provinces Gelderland, Noord-Brabant and Overijssel, but the operating area is bigger, since innovation crosses borders.
The mission of Health Valley is to connect care, knowledge and entrepreneurship to create promising environments in East-Netherlands that strengthen its innovative power. This way, Health Valley aims to create sustainable business activity and to contribute to high-end and sustainable healthcare. Its ambition is to be the party that gives direction to care-innovation.
First of all, Health Valley acts as a matchmaker that brings different parties together and helps to strengthen their ties by organizing activities. This is done by for example organising regional network meetings several times a year. Furthermore, Health Valley aids in finding partners for projects and new products, both in the public and private sector; supports starting entrepreneurs in the health sector; and takes care of profiling and marketing of innovative end products, both within and outside the network.
