Regional and national innovation networks
NHL is at the heart of a wide and dynamic regional and national ecosystem favorable to innovation and business development.
Our trusted partners include Eurasante, regional economic development agency for the biology, health and nutrition sectors and Clubster Santé, a cluster of companies in the healthcare sector.
We also work in close collaboration with the other French competitiveness clusters especially with the ones focused on health or food, or those located in the Nord Pas de Calais region.
Since 2014, the French competitiveness clusters have joined forces in an association to defend our interests and those of our members namely regarding European issues (projects, funding sources, acknowledgement, lobbying).
