Internationalisation strategy for Leiden Bio Science Park


Future Place Leadership is pleased to announce we are supporting Leiden Bio Science Park (LSBP) in the Netherlands in their transformation journey from science park to a vibrant innovation district.

The collaboration concentrates on strengthening the regional and national ecosystems and their partnership base. We are developing an internationalisation strategy that fosters the transformation towards an innovation district that attracts and retains foreign businesses, investors and talents to LBSP.

During the partnership with LBSP we will also be helping with the development of an effective trade and acquisition organisation, that has an eco-system for attractive investment and residential climate.

The project has come to fruition in large thanks to our newest Future Place Leadership family member Nicole van Haelst, who has partnered up with the company as Senior Adviser, Innovation hubs and talent acquisition.

Morten King-Grubert, the Director of Talent and Business Development at Future Place Leadership says: “Science parks and clusters are key enablers of place attractiveness and acquisition processes. We very are excited to work with a leading European life science cluster. With Leiden having recently been awarded as the 2022 European City of Science, the timing could not be greater to further develop their internationalisation strategy in advance of such a promotional platform.”

About Leiden Bio Science Park: Leiden Bio Science Park (LBSP) is the Netherlands’ largest life science and health (LSH) innovation district that brings together young talent, researchers and entrepreneurs to work on achieving longer, healthy lives for everyone. With top-quality educational and research institutions, innovative companies and unique facilities for the entire drug development chain, LBSP ranks among the leading LSH innovation districts in Europe. As a dynamic innovation district, LBSP offers a wide range of programmes and activities as well as residential and leisure facilities making the science park a global destination for innovation and a hub for LSH innovators.
