Life sciences economy
Healthcare is a crucial sector in the Limburg economy. Almost one in five residents of Limburg are employed in this sector, and for women in Limburg this is even higher: one in three. As well as the need for qualified staff, the social significance of quality healthcare must not be underestimated. Digitisation is gaining importance in this sector: according to experts, we could all live five years longer thanks to digitisation of care.
Limburg has a unique healthcare and wellbeing ecosystem, This makes our province the ideal testing ground for digital innovations, which we want to encourage even more through POM Limburg.
