The Brightlands Smart Services Campus is growing and will be opening a brand-new floor on Thursday, May 24, specially designed and set up for Techruption. On the fourth floor of the Campus in Heerlen, a collection of like-minded people work on sustainable innovations in blockchain, artificial intelligence and climate change. They do this through co-creation, working with companies, students and knowledge partners. Not only is this structure unique in the Netherlands, it is also very effective. At the facility, innovations are made to the existing innovation process.
The new community floor will be officially opened on Thursday May 24 during a festive celebration combined with the Get Out of the Building event of Brightlands Innovation Factory. During the GOOTB, the start-ups who participated in the Techruption Incubation Program share their story and innovation with you.
