New global hub for digital– and nano-technologies in Food, Health & the Environment
To strengthen the position as global leader in the fields of food, health and the environment, the province of Gelderland has invested €65 million in OnePlanet. OnePlanet is an innovation center with a strong focus on cooperation between developers of key enabling technologies and research in food, health and environmental issues. OnePlanet is an initiative of the universities of Wageningen and Nijmegen and the research institute imec.
The OnePlanet innovation center offers an ideal opportunity for international tech companies active in these research themes to develop and validate new solutions targeting worldwide challenges of the future. The imec research center business models have a longstanding track record in targeted research industry cooperation in several parts of the world.
OnePlanet will start with a focus on four program lines:
1. Data driven nutrition & health
2. Precision production & processing
3. Citizen empowerment
4. Tailored supply chains
Based on these new developments the campus organizations of Wageningen and Nijmegen are opening new facilities for business, such as the Plus Ultra II building in Wageningen. In Nijmegen the Novio Tech Campus is expanding its facilities for businesses in health & high-tech.
OnePlanet will be located in Plus Ultra II and on the Novio Tech Campus.
