About the Dutch participants

The Dutch participants' participation is part of a longer trajectory in which they aim to learn about both the Swedish and Danish market and local innovations, try to connect with potential partners and prepare for a possible market entry. Below the companies have been divided into four groups, based on their expertise.


Sustainable and Circular Urban Development 

Building the New  

Building The New is developing an ecosystem of products and services that bring consciousness in the living environment. This is being done by actively solving challenges like loss of biodiversity, lack of social inclusion, nitrogen polution and housing shortage on the NL market. The innovations  developed with expert companies are launched in their own real estate development projects and supported with incubator tooling. In 2021 first project is finished, containing approximately 56 homes in the town of Amersfoort called Into The Woods.

BLOC is a high-profile concept and project developer working both on its own projects (The Dutch Mountains: largest wooden building in the world) and for a selection of clients such as HEINEKEN, Vrumona and multiple municipalities and provinces. They work on buildings, areas and mobility systems, all from the perspective that there is a need for cities that are more clever, cleaner and competitive. 


Space & Matter  

Space&Matter is a studio for spatial design and concept development. With an integrated design approach creating circular buildings and neighbourhoods that foster close knit communities and have a positive impact on the planet. Within the Dutch circular economy market they have a strong position within the market and are at the forefront of developing sustainable floating neighbourhoods, providing resilience in face of climate change. As well as spatial and concept design services they also develop ventures, including a community-led housing platform CrowdBuilding and a modular timber construction company BoomBuilds, which offers a scalable circular construction system. 



Sustainable Energy Generation 


Turn your world around. Cash the wind with 100% green energy. The Airturb Model One yields energy from as little as wind force 1. The Airturb can be installed on any roof.


Compact energy 

The Airturb One is supplied installation ready. The height is 1.40 metres, the weight is under 25 kg. Installation: It can be mounted in different ways. Your local Airturb dealer would be happy to advise you on suitable options. 


The Model One can produce 600 Watts per hour under optimal conditions. Whether it concerns a mobile telephone or an electric car, up to wind force 6, the Airturb can supply a share of your total energy needs. 



The mission of Energyfloors is to speed up the energy transition by creating awareness about renewable energy in exciting ways. 

By designing and building floors that generate energy, are smart, interactive and make sustainability visible. So everyone who steps on them realizes that they can really make an impact. 

Van der Valk Solar Systems  

Van der Valk Solar Systems is since 2009 one of the fastest-growing companies in the solar industry and focuses entirely on the development and production of solar mounting systems for pitched roofs, flat roofs, and open fields.

With their extensive knowledge in the market of architecture, product development, design, and sustainability, they are the founders of Solarix: a beautiful design facade panel that generates energy for the people. 



Sustainable Buildings through Data 


All projects need a single source of truth. In complex construction projects, people create masses of data which needs to be reliably collected, managed and disseminated. Thinkproject's secure, cloud-based solutions support the entire project lifecycle. Connecting people, teams, processes, information and systems across company boundaries, enabling an open, collaborative approach. 
thinkproject‘s construction intelligence platform also enables mobile access, keeping every worker connected to their project regardless of what hardware is at their fingertips - even supporting workers when poor connectivity prevents internet access. By facilitating digital interactions where things happen, they enable efficient project delivery. 
Applying cloud-deployed technologies, projects are set-up and rolled-out for users in under a day. Projects requiring BIM insights are no exception. The BIM capabilities of thinkproject’s  help design and construction teams, start coordinating key information within hours. 
Also being offered is detailed support for common industry contracts such as NEC and FIDIC, recognising that effective change management is vital to efficient project delivery from day one. With thinkproject, workers can collaborate and coordinate within hours.
