Health Valley is the healthcare innovation network of the Netherlands with more than 200 national and international partners. To maintain accessible, affordable, and high-quality healthcare, we dedicate ourselves to accelerate technological innovations in healthcare, by connecting healthcare institutions, companies, knowledge institutions, and government, challenging them to address health challenges in cure and care. The ultimate goal is to enable people to live longer in good health and reduce healthcare costs.
Health innovation by networking, business development, project management and connecting are core at Health Valley. The entire health ecosystem is involved in the approach, including healthcare institutions, municipalities/provinces, companies, and researchers collaborating with SME’s to address challenges in healthcare. The goal is to rapidly develop, implement, and scale innovative technological solutions. As an independent intermediary and innovation catalyst, Health Valley Netherlands (locates in the eastern part of the country) generates impact at both national and international levels. This is achieved through its network, promoting healthcare innovation on a global scale.
Innovation is not done alone. We believe in an approach where different parties collaborate with each other. And we believe in co-creation. We encourage projects in which healthcare institutions, municipalities/provinces, companies, and researchers join forces. We identify healthcare challenges and connect them to the business sector to rapidly develop, implement, and scale innovative technological solutions.
