Metropole Ruhr Meets Gelderland: Health

Event / 07, Nov, 2019

After a fantastic start in the first half of the year, it’s time again – the Metropole Ruhr region meets the province of Gelderland! Entrepreneurs from the Metropole Ruhr region and the province of Gelderland come together to make contacts, hold talks and do business. Directly, to the point and with an entertaining accompanying program.


Thematically it’s about the health economy in the broadest sense, which is an important key industry not only in Gelderland but also in the Metropole Ruhr.


The meeting addresses itself to entrepreneurs from companies of any size on this side and beyond the Maas, who are interested in business contacts to Dutch and/or German business partners and companies, in particular, but not exclusively within the field of the health economy:
Establish new contacts to business partners for joint projects. Introduce your company to new and interested business partners from the healthcare industry and the German-Dutch economy. Grow your company by initiating new business, opening up new markets and expanding your business relationships.


The program is as follows:

  • A dayprogram: With a delegation of around 40 businesses/companies from Gelderland and the Metropole Ruhr Region we will meet the BISUS Health IT GmbH in Bochum, the Aesculap-Akedemie GmbH in Bochum and the Medicos auf Schalke GmbH in Gelsenkirchen. Mr Rameckers, director of Qwiek, a company with sites in Heerlen and Duisburg will give a presentation about successful cross-border entrepreneurship in healthcare.
  • From 18.15hrs there will be a festive closing Dutch-German network drink in the VIP-Lounge of the Schalke04-stadion where among others the councillor EZ of the municipality of Nijmegen and Mr. Haze from Health Valley will give presentations on the topic: Recent developments in the Dutch Health Sector.


Attendance is free but there are limited spots available.
