Accelerating educational innovation with EdTech

The Netherlands leading in the field of educational technology

Zone EdTech

Developments in the EdTech (Educational Technology) sector can make a good contribution to accelerating educational innovation. Right now, however, there are many barriers for EdTech companies, such as complex laws and regulations, lack of standardisation and risk aversion in supporting departments. As a result, real educational innovation with EdTech remains fragmented, and there is often a lack of alignment with the needs and expectations of students and lecturers. The EdTech team wants to change this situation and make the Netherlands a fertile breeding ground for (starting) EdTech companies.
