The Hague, 1st of Augustus 2017 – Today Health~Holland, Top Sector Life Sciences & Health (LSH), launches the Knowledge and Innovation Agenda 2018-2021 titled Grow~Motion. This new strategic document describes the health and care ambitions for the next four years (2018-2021).
The strategy focuses on the global societal challenge ‘Health and Care’. The demand for care is rapidly increasing due to ageing of the population, lifestyle and increase of chronically ill people. In order to properly address this global challenge and exploit economic opportunities, cooperation between citizens, researchers, government and entrepreneurs is essential. Top sectors and key technologies, such as ICT, nano- and biotechnology, provide a solid platform for interdisciplinary collaboration.
Strong successful collaboration calls for synergy. The new Knowledge and Innovation Agenda provides this by combining forces of people and organisations. The routes of the Dutch National Research Agenda, strategic policies of the Dutch government, LSH roadmaps, as well as the key enabling technologies and the link with other top sectors form the foundation of the LSH coalition.
