Business Development, Europe
The international reputation Leiden enjoys as a city of knowledge is one of monumental renown and a long history. Leiden, City of Discoveries, has been home to many Nobel Prize laureates. New discoveries are still made in our city every day: at the university, in the Leids Universitair Medisch Center (LUMC) and at the Bio Science Park. The park has developed into one of the biggest biomedical science clusters in the Netherlands, and one of the strongest biomedical science clusters in the world.
In addition to exceptional knowledge, Leiden also boasts many attractive features as a city: the city is rich in cultural heritage, a vast wealth of history in art and science, and a beautiful, vibrant city centre where almost everything is within walking distance.
Ease of Access
Schiphol International Airport is situated between Leiden and Amsterdam, and you can reach Leiden in approximately 15 minutes by train or in 20 minutes by car. Leiden is located in the west of the Netherlands, between The Hague and Amsterdam.
Leiden Central Station is right in the city centre within walking distance of the big hotels and many conference and event locations. The taxi stand can be found on top of the bicycle parking facility in the centre of Stationsplein. You can also opt to experience the Dutch way of transport: by bike! You can rent bikes in the vicinity of the station.
The Bio Science Park in Leiden is the heart of medical and biological applied sciences in Northwest Europe and is the biggest life sciences cluster in the Netherlands. In addition to publicly funded knowledge institutions, many SMEs and large companies are also established here. Together, they develop and produce medicines, vaccines and more. The close proximity of the medical and natural science faculties contribute largely to their success.
