Managing the park together
The park is facilitated by four organisations that help it keep in shape, grow and ready for the future:
Developing the cluster
The Leiden Bio Science Park foundation manages the development of Leiden Bio Science Park:
We attract new companies and institutions to the cluster and facilitate them in finding the right locations and facilities for setting-up or expanding business.
- We enhance the internal cohesion of the cluster by bringing people together and organizing networking and R&D events.
- We facilitate the cluster by managing projects on labour market and start-ups.
- We handle the marketing communication and lobby of the park.
We help you to find your way at the science park and provide information on the park.
All to make sure the park works well for inhabitants and visitors alike.
Park management & maintenance and joint facilities
The companies and organisations at the park are represented by the entrepreneurial society of Leiden Bio Science Park (OV BSP). The OV BSP takes care of park management and maintenance, offers collective facilities (shuttle bus, car sharing) and collective contracts, and acts as a spokesperson in infrastructural projects on behalf of its members.
