Top sector Life Sciences & Health

Life Sciences & Health is one of the leading sectors in the Dutch economy, and was therefore appointed top priority by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs. The top sector aims to contribute to the LSH sector's success by joining forces and uniting partners along the prevention-cure-care (value) chain. All with a clear mission: vital citizens in a healthy economy.

The top sector's communication channel, Health~Holland,  aims to inform Dutch stakeholders active in LSH on relevant developments and opportunities. You will find news and events, calls and funding, as well as detailed information to support SMEs. Finally, Health~Holland provides a communication toolkit to present the Dutch LSH sector abroad.  In due course, the Health~Holland website will evolve into an extensive portal covering all relevant aspects from our stakeholders. 

Financial support for
public-private partnerships

The Netherlands is a frontrunner in public private partnership (PPP),
jointly working to find innovative solutions for health challenges. 

Health~Holland provides financial means to stimulate
​the formation of new PPPs.
