Researchers at the word
"With PathoFinder we have on the Maastricht Health Campus a great place. Close to the university and the university hospital. I look a bit wider, then it is imperative to connect. Campuses in Southern Netherlands together Preferably even with the institutes across the border in Aachen, Hasselt, Liege and Leuven. Build networks, the forces and all the knowledge and expertise tying together a large campus; that's my idea. Investing in Knowledge-axis is necessary that attention should be given to SMEs. I see too few small businesses land here, there are insufficient facilities. Here at the Health Campus in Maastricht, we have been waiting for years to expand the Biopartner Center: an accelerator. In China they do it the other way around: first the building, then the entrepreneurs themselves. We need to scale thinking, our competitors are simply in Asia and America. "
