'Proeftuin Haasrode', organised by UC Leuven-Limburg (UCLL) at Campus Proximus, gives organisations in Haasrode research park a taste of what a partnership with UCLL holds in business, technology and informatics.
This networking event closely resembles the Taskforce Spitsregio Leuven where VOKA and inter-communal Interleuven participate. Fifteen organisations partook in the project, among them Siemens, Cegeka, Ninatrans, VWR International and others. The goal was to get acquainted, kick off a self-managing network and take a first step towards sustainable cooperation in which all partners are engaged.
Even more, some promising contacts were made for interesting bilateral cooperations in the development of competences and talents of students through the creation of of regional assets in research and service provision.
After Proeftuin Haasrode, the taskforce will investigate how the entire region of East Brabant (Aarschot, Tienen, Diest) can be involved in order to build even more bridges between the university colleges and organisations.
