The JRCZ is a unique building, not only in Zeeland but also in the Netherlands. The building consists of laboratories for engineering, chemistry, ecology and a data lab, all equipped with state-of-the-art equipment. On each floor, there are so-called makerspaces where students meet with teachers and researchers. Here, they inspire and help each other solve complex, social issues around the themes of water, energy, food and the biobased economy. These are themes that fit the DNA of Zeeland.
The Joint Research Center Zeeland is part of Campus Zeeland. This is an alliance of companies, knowledge and research institutions and governments in Zeeland.
Rogier van der Torren, Foreign Direct Investments Manager at Impuls Zeeland, says it’s great to have the JRCZ in Zeeland. “This really adds value for (international) companies that are working on the core themes of water, energy, food and the biobased economy and thereby contribute to further strengthen the Zeeland economy.”
