Utrecht, Heart of Health

Our ambitions

There are unprecedented transitions at play in our society . Regionally, nationally and internationally . From the labour market to health and sustainability, from increasing urbanisation to major rapid technological changes. This brings with it significant challenges. Our region has the highest overall prosperity of any urban region in the Netherlands. And we are one of the topmost competitive regions in Europe. A healthy urban living environment and prosperity go hand in hand in the Utrecht metropolitan region. Our aim is to strengthen the Utrecht economy in a future-oriented and sustainable way.

The Board is an independent player connecting all parties. We are committed to the collective interest of the region, and we put a vision for the future of our region high on the agenda. We mobilise our network and use our knowledge and expertise to support initiatives and partners from the region that create widespread healthy prosperity in our region. We lead the strategic economic conversation on the future of our region upon request or on our own initiative .

We focus on solutions to the major societal transitions that strengthen our business climate, our knowledge and innovation sectors and our infrastructure. We exploit opportunities for regional and supra-regional cooperation and investment funds in Brussels and The Hague.
