Share the knowledge available at companies and institutions in Geomatics Business Park (GBP), benefit from investment programmes and make use of the joint facilities and networks at hand.
The Geomatics Business Park thematic approach yields a unique concentration of knowledge and networks at a location where companies and institutions have the opportunity to use them to their fullest extent.
GBP incorporates the forerunners of the geomatics industry. These companies and institutions represent a treasure of knowledge, innovative capacity and insight into (international) market segments. Sharing this knowledge and these networks is one of the reasons why organizations and people are appealed to commit to the GBP centre of excellence.
Moreover, at GBP, companies can make use of resources that the government has made available to innovative companies, such as various incentive funds and initiatives from the province of Flevoland, ‘Ontwikkelingsmaatschappij Flevoland’ Flevoland Development Agency (OMFL), and the ‘Noordoostpolder Municipality’.
The GBP collective corporate building is architect-designed and well-equipped. Hence, the word sharing also refers to sharing common rooms, the presentable entrance and the multi-functional auditorium: all of these are high-level facilities, supporting the core activities of the companies and institutions. The auditorium, for example, provides room for meetings counting up to 150 people.
As a cooperative company within GBP, you will also share the services offered by the GBP Foundation. Within the building, the foundation takes on the part of catalyst, encouraging the mutual transfer of knowledge and the synergy between companies and knowledge institutions, as well as joint promotion and improved market access.
Finally, the companies share the easy access to neighbouring high-tech institutions, such as the ‘Nationale Lucht- en Ruimtevaart Laboratorium’ National Aerospace Laboratory (NLR) and DNW, a company exploiting large wind tunnels. The NLR, initiator of GBP, offers additional technical facilities, knowledge, people and the proper infrastructure for all kinds of research. In addition, the NLR is a renowned high-tech knowledge institution with an international network. DNW operates one of the largest wind tunnels, which is employed by large international airlines. Royal Huisman Shipyard is established in a nearby town called Vollenhove: this company’s high-tech yachts are celebrated and unique in their league.
