On Monday 28 September 2020, State Secretary Mona Keijzer of Economic Affairs responded positively to the call of the 10 largest science parks and innovation campuses in the Netherlands to invest in the physical aspect of innovation: top locations where research and companies literally meet. She agreed that precisely in these times of working from home has shown how important meetings are for innovation. She also complimented the 10 top locations for joining forces. She understood the desire for more coherence in policy and investment in campus development and indicated that this call for 'a snare' came at the right time. She encouraged the campuses to discuss a possible application for the Growth Fund together with her ministry and the ministry of OCW.
