NL Space Campus development is moving forward
Thanks to close collaborations with the government, agencies, education and entrepreneurs that have taken place over the past year, a good number of projects for NL Space Campus are in the pipeline. Where the NL Space Campus community has started to live 'digitally', we are now entering a phase, covid restrictions permitting, where we can reinforce 'online activities' with 'live' projects that will be much more visible.In the past months we have worked hard towards the LDE NL Space Campus Summer School, the Open Field activation and permits for the first buildings on the physical campus.
One of the main tasks of the campus is to facilitate meetings, accidental or not, for the cluster to create open innovation as a natural process. We are therefore proud to announce that the plans for Activating Open Field are in the permit phase. The first paths across the field, the first meeting place, a large events plaza with a partly covered terrace and last but not least a new space for the campus organization to welcome visitors from the heart of the campus from now on. Last but not least, a prominent parking space for the food truck, because meetings without food and drinks are only half the deal. With these elements we can offer people an actual stage, which will certainly have a positive influence on the growth of the campus. So if you see people from the campus organisation on a lawnmower soon, you know what our first ground breaking goal is!
A small glance beyond the Activation Open Field shows that two huge pillars for the campus are eagerly waiting: the Fablab and the Basecamp. Designs for both are being brought to maturity. More on that in future news. In addition to movement in the heart of the campus, there is also movement in the peripheral zone. Burgland/van der Most has released the designs for two high-end office buildings, next to the ATG-building! See our website for more information on this topic.
