Mission/Objectives: 

East Netherlands Development Agency (OostNL) is an agency that focuses its activities and projects on strengthening and stimulating the economy of the provinces of Gelderland and Overijssel in the Netherlands. We work with companies in the provinces of Gelderland and Overijssel and are commissioned by the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy and the respective Provinces. Oost NL plays an important role in executing the economic policies of the Dutch government and the Provinces of Gelderland and Overijssel and its various city governments. To achieve this it is necessary to encourage a close cooperation between companies, regional institutes, knowledge institutes, and intermediaries. Oost NL acts as a bridge between the aforementioned organisations. We focus on sectors Life Sciences and Health.
