The EU Office of the Northern Netherlands is an in-house office representing the cities Groningen, Leeuwarden, Assen and Emmen in the EU. The EU Office is situated at the House of the Dutch Provinces in Brussels.
Presenting innovative projects
The aim of the office is to represent the interests of the cities and to develop innovative projects with international partners in the EU. The goal is to find partners from other regions and cities, connect them to our projects and perceive new developments and projects which can contribute to our economic challenges. This way we want to improve the competitiveness, and the development of businesses in the Northern Netherlands.
Focus on knowledge areas
We want to focus on downstream projects; realistic projects that matter for the ecosystem of the cities. The cities in the Northern Netherlands focus on four important shared areas of knowledge:
- Circular Economy
The government, research institutes and businesses are actively cooperating on these topics. The four cities are coordinating and facilitating concrete projects related to these themes. For more information about the projects please contact us via the ‘contact’ page.
