What is Groningen Innovation Port?
Under the name of Groningen Innovation Port, we are launching all kinds of initiatives that should ultimately lead to creating an extensive testing facility, allowing start-ups and established companies to benefit from sharing their knowledge, innovations and network. For example we want to facilitate a testing windmill where all kinds of exercises and tests can take place. We also want to set up a test facility on the Nijlicht site where start-ups and companies can try out their new techniques and innovations.
