Kennis-As project


The programme Limburg Invests in its Knowledge Economy (LINK) involves the establishment of two institutes around three top scientists:

  • M4I, the Institute of Nanoscopy
  • MERLN,  the Institute for Technology-Inspired Regenerative Medicine
Kennis-As 2.0 - MERLN

These institutes will not only create scientific and economic value in themselves, but also strengthen the interaction between the Brightlands Chemelot Campus and the Brightlands  Maastricht Health Campus; M4I through advanced mass spectrometry and electron microscopy, and MERLN through regenerative medicine.

This enhanced knowledge infrastructure will help the region to attract and retain existing and new companies as well as young, talented researchers.

In the context of the Kennis-As Limburg investment programme, the establishment of these institutes will contribute to innovative healthcare, the training of knowledge workers and the development of research lines and valorisation projects.
