Bas Baalmans, project manager Groningen Digital Business Center (GDBC), is since January 1, 2021, part of the Industry Relations team. In addition to his activities at the GDBC, he is now also program manager European Digital Innovation Hubs (EDIH). In this role, he focuses on connecting the University of Groningen (UG) to the EDIH proposal from the Northern Netherlands, which focuses on digital transformation within companies and organisations. Bas acts as a connecting factor between different faculties at the UG to collect, share, and bring together input for the proposal. In this role, he will strengthen and further expand the network between the relevant faculties and partners.

Bas previously worked as an information manager and project leader at Yacht ICT, Waterbedrijf Groningen, the Province of Groningen and Noordhoff Uitgevers, among others.
