Universities, knowledge institutes, cities and companies join forces to select and initiate repeatable and scalable cleantech initiatives that often involve new combinations of know-how and partnerships in the region Delft – Rotterdam – Drechtsteden.

Our regional economy is in transition and where the rubber meets the road is in concrete projects. Our process of originating, selecting and initiating projects ensures that all projects are viable.
