Materials and Chemical Science

A leading center for material and chemical science

Brightlands Chemelot Campus is a unique community that combines basic research, applied research, value creation, and education to accelerate business growth—all in an effort to solve threats to our planet.

Brightlands heavily invests in research. Not in a traditional way, but in a transitional way, by creating environments with state of the art facilities where scientists of different institutions and companies work together and combine the best insights and networks to create breakthroughs in health and sustainability. But also by offering access to scientific talent and create opportunities to turn bold ideas into legendary companies.

The campus is host of three public/private science institutes with a focus on performance, biomedical and biobased materials. All of them are founded by world leading academic institutes and companies.
