Europe profoundly impacts the work of the province of Utrecht. In response, the province formulated its 2012-2015 European Strategy. This strategy builds on the following main themes:
Utrecht as a knowledge centre for climate, sustainability and innovation (KIC);
Utrecht: European meeting point for knowledge & Innovation;
Utrecht: European Region, an urban area with challenges & a vital rural area.
Issues that reach across the borders
Europe deals with important issues that reach across the borders of both the Netherlands and the province of Utrecht. The European Union (EU) substantially influences the province’s fields of activity. Europe offers solutions by providing regulations, laws and grants.
