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.
