NEXT Delft accelerator building
Making connections is part of NEXT Delft’s DNA. In addition to high-end office space, the heart of the building contains maker labs: these are spaces that can be used as workshops and as laboratories for prototyping innovations. Within NEXT Delft, businesses working on technological, impactful innovations can collaborate with start-ups and scale-ups. Moreover, NEXT Delft offers community spaces, a state-of-the-art event centre and high-quality catering facilities to facilitate collaboration, getting together and serendipity.
NEXT Delft came into being from the close collaboration between the ASR Dutch Science Park Fund and TU Delft and is funded in part by subsidies from the City of Delft 2040 Fund and the provincial subsidy scheme Subsidieregeling Campussen Zuid-Holland.
