Opportunity for humanitarian innovation

What is missing, worldwide, is an overall concept ‘Smart Basing’ for Humanitarian Innovation, a joint innovation center where public and private initiatives share knowledge and networks. Sharing is the asset and the pivoting value of the open innovation. The smart basing community consists of (technology) driven innovative companies, developers and first responders.
The former Twente Airport offers a unique combination of space and direct access to knowledge and facilities in the region. It is also a gateway to other test facilities in the Netherlands. It is a conditioned environment for development, testing, training, validation, pre-certification, real time simulations and demonstrations. It’s the perfect place for innovation in the humanitarian domain.
