Knowledge Crossing Borders

Currently, Brightlands hosts two campuses: Brightlands Chemelot Campus with a focus on (biobased and biomedical) performance materials and Brightlands Maastricht Health Campus with a focus on health.

Modern problems often require collaboration between research & business fields. That's why Brightlands stimulates cross-overs in science, organizations and geographical borders. What unites us is that in both places molecular sciences leads to new solutions for society. At the same time, we take the challenge to make the next step in the economic development of this great region by combining our excellent reputations.
