* Bjorn Sanders succeeded Roy Vercoulen as managing director of the C2C ExpoLAB foundation
The C2C® ExpoLAB Foundation is giving shape and substance to the ambitions of the Municipality of Venlo with regard to Cradle to Cradle®. Since October 2010, the foundation has also been responsible for translating those ambitions into results.
C2C® ExpoLAB in Venlo aims to stimulate and support developments in the area of Cradle to Cradle®. It does that by gathering knowledge in that area and bundling it in a documentation centre, making it available to government organisations, market players and knowledge and educational institutions. By doing so, C2C® ExpoLAB is reinforcing the foundations for a sustainable future of the region.
The C2C® ExpoLAB links government organisations, knowledge and educational institutions and the business world in order to document processes of Cradle to Cradle® applications in buildings, regional development and products, validate them and open them up for other parties.
For that purpose, the C2C® ExpoLAB is facilitating the Cradle to Cradle® chair of learning at the University of Twente, which forms the basis for the knowledge and educational infrastructure for Cradle to Cradle® in the Venlo region. Via that chair of learning, C2C® ExpoLAB is laying links with national and international projects and centres of knowledge.
C2C® ExpoLAB was founded in October 2010 by the Municipality of Venlo. On being founded, the board of governors consisted of representatives of the Municipality of Venlo. As of 30-11-2010 a representative of the Chamber of Commerce Limburg, one of our committed partners joined the board of governors of the C2C® ExpoLAB Foundation.
The C2C® ExpoLAB Foundation intends to be the best in advising and supporting businesses and institutions in applying Cradle to Cradle® in an integrated urban environment. By doing so, the foundation wants to deliver a contribution to sustainable regional development.
