In 2017, four academic partners initiated an ambitious collaboration in the TOPFIT Impact programme, aiming for two more healthe lifeyears for citizens in Eastern Netherlands. From the start, the programme wanted to have impact on society, economy and science and therefore chose to be an open innovation consortium, inviting and representing all relevant stakeholders in the region.
