Leiden, European City of Science 2022 (Leiden2022), has signed a European partnership with Modern Workspace and Data and Information Management Specialist Proact to provide a complete ICT infrastructure and modern workplace solution.
Leiden is home to the oldest university in the Netherlands, and in addition to a large academic hospital, it also houses a large-scale bioscience park. With this concentration of scientific knowledge, the city is known as the meeting place of international talent who has been driving innovation for centuries. These characteristics and history led to the city being chosen as the European Science City for the year 2022 under the name Leiden2022.
To meet the needs surrounding the one-year event program of activity, Leiden2022 entered into a European partnership with Proact to outsource a complete IT and communication infrastructure implementation, including a Modern Workspace solution that enables its employees to work (together) safely anywhere. The solution enables Leiden2022 to focus on the activity program while at the same time providing a flexible and secure IT and communication environment.
Leiden2022 is looking for relationships with European partners who are innovative, flexible, caring and have a strong drive for improvement. “In our opinion, the properties that Proact possesses,” says Meta Noll, Director of Leiden2022.
“We are proud to be the first European partner to contact Leiden European City of Science 2022. As a full-service IT organization, people are the focus of our attention, just like Leiden 2022. Our knowledge and experience in the field of IT,” said Marc Van Limpet, Business Unit Manager at West at Proact, “Innovation, combined with the fact that many of our clients are active in the world of science and education, has been crucial to us.”
