Welcome at Economic Board Utrecht

We are Economic Board Utrecht. We are committed to becoming the healthiest region in the world by strengthening the economy of the Utrecht Region in a future-oriented and sustainable way and by working together with other regions.

Meet the board

Economic Board Utrecht is an elite network of prominent leaders from the business community, knowledge institutions and government throughout the Utrecht metropolitan region. Our ambition is to become the healthiest region in the world. We achieve this by collaborating with other regions in the Netherlands and around the world. Utrecht is the beating heart of a healthy society with healthy people in a healthy living environment.

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.

What we do

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.
