Centre for future affordable & sustainable therapy development

FAST is a national centre for sustainable therapy development where affordability and innovation go hand in hand.

Centre for future affordable & sustainable therapy development

The high level of medical and pharmacological knowledge and the possibilities for collaboration between companies and academia in the Netherlands offer opportunities to take a leading position in the field of therapy development.

FAST (Centre for Future Affordable Sustainable Therapy development) promotes faster, smarter, better and cheaper development, production and availability of new therapies for patients.

By strengthening the innovative power of the Dutch LSH ecosystem, FAST serves patients, healthcare in general and economic growth in a strategically important sector. The strength of the expertise centre lies in the collaboration with patient organisations, knowledge institutes, healthcare providers, companies and government agencies, in short with the LSH ecosystem in the broadest sense.

Investing in future therapy development

With an extensive network of partners, FAST works on solutions for complex issues in the process of therapy development and makes expertise and advice available within the prioritized focus areas. Social needs and opportunities for the Dutch LSH sector are leading in this.
