Campus development #1: How to built a strong ecosystem

This special mini-series about campus development is part of ‘Building the Future’. In this first episode, we focus on ecosystems. Specifically, how to build a strong ecosystem. Developing campuses is way more than bricks and mortar: building a strong community requires time and effort from all parties involved. We learn about the different forms and definitions of innovation ecosystems and the value of strong collaborations. We also discuss how Kadans, together with its partners, puts this all into practice in the new Plus Ultra Leiden building at Leiden Bio Science Park.

Host Rudy van Beurden discusses this topic together with 3 guests: Gwen van Overbeke (Governance, Communication & Branding Manager at Leiden Bio Science Park), Paul Jansen (Vice president of Innovation Area Development Partnership (IADP)) and Tom Straeter (Senior Ecosystem Manager at Kadans Science Partner).
