Mrs. Marjo Crompvoets, the newly appointed Consul General of the Netherlands in Shanghai, visited Brightlands Maastricht Health Campus on 9th of July 2021. The visit was facilitated by Mr. Robbert Lambriks from the Province of Limburg.
The Brightlands China Center and Maastricht Instruments presented the highlights of the Brightlands ecosystem and its business connection with Shanghai and East China in Life Sciences and Health area.
Brightlands Maastricht Health Campus entered into partnership with the National Eastern Tech-Transfer Center (NETC) in Shanghai in 2019 to accelerate collaboration on Knowledge and Technology Transfer. NETC is a national-level regional technology transfer platform jointly promoted by the Ministry of Science and Technology of the People’s Republic of China and the Shanghai Municipal People’s Government.
Maastricht Instruments is active in the Chinese market since 2018 and is currently installing two advanced Room Calorimeters and accompanying measurement systems at one of the best universities in China - Fudan University - to support them to build a state-of-the-art metabolic research center in Shanghai. In this way, the Brightlands Health Campus Maastricht contributes to tackling emerging wealth diseases in China.
It was an insightful visit according to CG Crompvoets. She will continue to support Brightlands and Limburg to strengthen the collaboration with East China further and she was impressed by the good foundation Limburg already established with China.
