Why others chose to join the Rotterdam Life Sciences & Health ecosystem

In 2017, GE Healthcare selected Rotterdam for their new Netherlands office. The core business of GE Heathcare is to manufacture and sell high end technical medical equipment to healthcare professionals all over the world. Country Imaging Sales Manager Jawad Handizi motivates the choice for establishing in Rotterdam.

GE Healthcare choose to open their office in Cambridge Innovation Centre Rotterdam, because of the atmosphere and the concept. It meets their expectations regarding innovation. And the aim for them is to connect with other companies with a focus on Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning and on innovative healthcare-related ideas.

Community

Rotterdam has an active life sciences & health community that contributes to a highly innovative, economical and scientific climate. This is strengthened by regularly exchanging knowledge during networking events organized in partnership with industry partners and the Municipality.

Conference city

Rotterdam is increasingly often the platform for large international conferences, for example about smart port and logistics, about growth, disease and health among children (Generation R) or the transition to more sustainable forms of energy.

Smart technologies and applications from Rotterdam entrepreneurs and the knowledge of scientists of Erasmus University and Erasmus MC come together at these conferences and fairs, and new avenues are explored.
