On December 7, between 2 and 4 p.m., the online symposium 'Facilities' will take place. The organization is in the hands of Living Ecosystem. One of the sub-sessions will focus on the Joint Research Center Zeeland.

In the ever-changing world of scientific research and innovation, collaboration is the key to success. On Dec. 7, symposium participants will discuss existing facilities in Zeeland, North Brabant and Rotterdam region, the area where Living Ecosystem is active.

They will discuss how they can jointly contribute to the improvement and expansion of research quality. During this symposium there will be inspiring speakers and interactive break-out sessions. These sessions highlight the role of designers in the biobased transition and collaboration with researchers and entrepreneurs. In addition, the integration of facilities and expertise between different parties will be discussed and it will become clear how to set up a successful research center. The main goal is to make optimal use of each other's facilities and work together to improve research and strengthen shared knowledge.
