Utrecht is the ultimate city for international meetings. Its central location and unmatched historic setting ensure that the Dom city is a logical place to meet. For IOHC2015 participants a special side event to Utrecht will be organized.
Thanks to its central location, the Utrecht Science Park (USP) is the beating heart of the Netherlands. It is home to a close, successful cooperation between Utrecht University, the University Medical Centre (UMC), Hubrecht Institute, the University of Applied Sciences, the City and the Province. And it’s not just limited to the Netherlands, as the Utrecht region and the research it produces are known around the world. Utrecht University is one of the top 60 universities in the world, and the European Commission in 2010 proclaimed the Utrecht area to be the most competitive in Europe. Its Life Sciences research, which ranges from fundamental to translational and clinical research, is top 10 in the world. The emphasis is on three main themes, each of which has a significant social importance: One Health- Public Health, Cancer, and Regenerative Medicine & Stem Cells.
