Welcome to the Netherlands, welcome to Limburg
We live in a global economy where physical borders are mere formalities. Doing business with and gathering information online from all parts of the globe is common practice. Our world is a giant network of opportunities on all continents and in all countries. Cultural and time differences have created a 24/7 economy with a global reach.
At the same time we all face large societal challenges like creating a society that is smarter, more sustainable, and healthier. That's why LIOF initiated 'Missie Limburg'.
Limburg as a highly globalised European nexus
Limburg has a lot to offer. More than is commonly known. Limburg has a highly distinctive character. The social and economic trends that have affected the province the last decades have generated a process of change and renewal which has enabled Limburg to transform its national peripheral location into a highly globalised European nexus.

Moving together towards a smarter, more sustainable, and healthier Limburg.
The world is changing at a rapid pace. We all face large societal challenges like creating a society that is smarter, more sustainable, and healthier. All this is happening in the context of the environmental pressure on our planet, the increasing scarcity of resources and growing influence of technology.
LIOF wants to take the lead in this 'Mission Limburg'. But we cannot do it alone: we need entrepreneurs and partners to make this happen. On this mission we focus on four transitions: energy, circularity, health and digitalization. Where do you stand in these transitions? Tell us what you're doing so that we can use our core instruments of advice, network and funding to take steps towards realizing social impact and economic return. Together on the way to a smarter, more sustainable and healthier Limburg.
