Utrecht Science Park is the largest science park in the Netherlands. Together we are working on innovative solutions for social issues such as a longer and healthier life and sustainability. HU University of Applied Sciences Utrecht and Utrecht University, for example, contribute to sustainable urban development through their collaboration coordinated by the Utrecht Sustainability Institute. An inspiring example of the collaboration is the Werkspoorkwartier, an icon for circular redevelopment. In the Werkspoorkwartier, building owners, knowledge institutions, businesses and students are collaborating to transform the area into a location to attract manufacturing companies and creative start-ups. Here, research, education and circular entrepreneurship come together.
