The Green Innovation Hub focuses on sustainable and inclusive area development in Almere, the province of Flevoland and even the rest of the Netherlands. This is a collaboration between the Municipality of Almere, VodafoneZiggo and the Province of Flevoland. The Green Innovation Hub is housed in the centre of Almere (north campus). The satellite location The Natural Pavilion is located on the former Floriade site (south campus). The Floriade Knowledge Programme, VodafoneZiggo’s experience with other innovation ecosystems, case studies of the municipality of Almere and the province of Flevoland provide the Green Innovation Hub and its participating organisations with a relevant network of partners, data and knowledge.
