Driving sectors

our power

Leeuwarden is aware of three top-sectors at the moment. Agro-food, water technology, and business services. For the first two, development has come hand-in-hand, and the two sectors strengthen each other and provide lots of cross-sector innovation. It's most certainly true: Friesland is the land of milk and water. In Leeuwarden, you'll sit at the pointy end of the arrow of progress: here important research is done and bigger and bigger innovations come to the fore each year.
