Health~Holland Pavilion at BIO-Europe Spring a great success

More than 100 Dutch entrepreneurs joined Health~Holland in Stockholm

This April the Netherlands hosted a modest but attractive Health~Holland Pavilion at the BIO-Europe Spring in Stockholm. This leading partnering event turned Stockholm into a global biotech hotspot for a week.

Thanks to the striking Health~Holland Pavilion and more than 100 Dutch participants who wore eye-catching orange key-cords, the Dutch presence did not go unnoticed. At the Pavilion, the Netherlands presented itself as an attractive country for establishing a biotech company, as an innovative business partner, and as a successful location for R&D.

The 'Biotech-in-the-Spotlight Corner', powered by 3D-PharmXchange and Pivot Park Screening Centre, gave individual Dutch companies the chance to present themselves at the Pavilion. And as always, the Pavilion served as a living room away from home for all Dutch delegates.

From 17 to 20 April Task Force Health Care in cooperation with Top Sector LSH organised the Holland Pavilion at the China Medical Equipment Fair in Shanghai. Seven Dutch companies exhibited under the Dutch flag. The exhibition broadly covered tens of thousands of products (such as medical imaging, in vitro diagnosis, electronics, optics, first aid, rehabilitation nursing, medical information technology and outsourcing services) as well as services to the entire medical industry chain from the source to the end of the medical equipment industry.


From 10 to 13 April Task Force Health Care and the Netherlands Enterprise Agency organised a Life Sciences & Health Programme for an SME trade mission to the Islamic Republic of Iran. A total of 12 Dutch LSH companies formed the first Dutch health delegation. Collective visits to the Ministry of Health of Iran, a public and private hospital, and a medical distribution centre were successfully organised. In addition, the Dutch delegation was offered private matchmaking and roundtable sessions with Iranian companies and institutions. On the last day an official trade dinner completed a fruitful visit to Iran.
