Flexible workspace

Brightlands is a community for open innovation in health and sustainability. This community is based in the Dutch province of Limburg, at the heart of the Eindhoven-Louvain-Aachen technology triangle. At the Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Sittard-Geleen, researchers, entrepreneurs, investors and students develop new solutions in the field of materials. This fundamental and applied research is made possible in part thanks to the state-of-the-art facilities available at the campus. Now you too can take advantage of the facilities and available space at our campus.

Startup Loft

The Startup Loft offers flexible workplaces to innovative entrepreneurs and is located at the former DSM Central Laboratory. The building underwent a complete renovation in 2017. The combination of authentic elements, facilities and contemporary atmosphere make it a nice place to work, for people of all ages. The brand-new Center Court is located right next to the Startup Loft.

Advantages of the Startup Loft

  • The Brightlands Chemelot Campus is abuzz with excitement, a place where you are surrounded by ambitious and talented students, experienced researchers and experts in your professional field.
  • You can make use of the specific facilities that we offer for your field of expertise such as a dedicated laboratory and pilot plants.
  • If you rent space at the Startup Loft, the Center Court and all of its facilities are right next-door. Center Court was designed especially to serve as a central meeting point at the campus. It offers state-of-the-art rooms for meetings and other gatherings, a conference facility with an auditorium, several restaurants, an espresso bar and sports facilities.

  The people, companies, knowledge institutes and facilities at the campus all form the ecosystem. Access to this ecosystem is what makes the Startup Loft the ideal place to turn your idea into a profitable business. Kurt Gielen, Business Development Manager
