InnovationQuarter is the regional economic development agency for the Province of Zuid-Holland, also known as the greater Rotterdam – The Hague area. Our mission is to strengthen the regional economic structure by stimulating the innovation potential of this unique delta region. Amongst the themes we focus on are Energy and Maritime and Ports. InnovationQuarter also assist Dutch companies with their international expansion. In the US we have established a strong network in Massachusetts. In a collaboration with the largest cleantech incubator in the US, Greentown Labs, we offer Dutch companies the opportunity to work in Boston for a period of 2-3 weeks to test the opportunities this region can offer. InnovationQuarter furthermore has good contacts with other cleantech organisations in the Boston region such as MassCEC and ACTION. Additionally InnovationQuarter has working relationships in Maryland and Virginia.

Role in this PIB

based on our network the US, we can offer to support HHWE and the PIB Cluster in collecting information from US governmental agencies quickly. As a regional, governmental backed organisation, we can help open doors at similar type organisations in the US like MassCEC, NYSERDA, Maryland Department of Commerce and others. We have been successful in establishing relationships with these organisations and will gladly open our network for the benefit of the PIB Cluster. As we have practical experience with organising missions, we can also offer our support to HHWE in this field.
