Within Green PAC applied research is done, knowledge is developed and (accelerated) innovations are realised by a unique joint venture between universities of applied sciences, universities and companies in the plastics industry.

By making use of the various facilities that Green PAC offers, the business community is being allowed to develop and carry out innovative projects under favourable conditions. In addition, Green PAC is focusing on education in North East Netherlands in order to strengthen the innovative power surrounding plastics technology.

At Green PAC technological issues are translated into research themes. In close cooperation with the business community students, lecturers, researchers, professors of applied sciences and professors conduct research into these application-focused technology and business cases. These cases subsequently contribute to activity in the form of start-ups and new enterprises.

Thanks to the direct interaction between knowledge suppliers and the business community, Green PAC is leading to quicker adaptation of new technology in the business community. Knowledge circulation between the universities of applied sciences, universities, technology companies and regional education is being stimulated and has an important place within Green PAC.
