Text of Knowledge Centre - Stakeholder Analysis





  • Ministry of VROM

Ministry of VROM

  • Main Issues are economics and employment, environment, international collaboration in the region.
  • Important factor in the collaboration between the 4 os in the region. (ondernemers = entrepreneurs, onderzoekers = researchers, onderwijs = education, overheid = government)

Province Zuid-Holland

  • Important factors in the creation of a knowledge center are Universities, mainly on a national level. But also collaboration with international Universities is a possibility.

Ministry Of Education, Culture and Science

Ministry ofForeign Affaires (Internal Affairs)

Ministry of Finance

  • Responsible for innovation on a national level
  • Responsible for national entrepreneurship
  • Responsible for international entrepreneurship (foreigninvestors etc)
  • Reduce bureaucracy

Ministry of Economics Impact Interest Stakeholder Group 4.

  • Current initiatives focus primarily on collaboration between the cities Rotterdam and Delft. Of course this collaboration is logical, but maybe it could be interesting to look further. The Netherlands is a very small country and it is therefore strange that most of the initiatives concerning a knowledge economy have a very regional focus. Countries like China see the Netherlands as a region, and it might therefore be interesting to collaborate on a more national level

Other Public Sector

  • Where Rotterdam is more the engine, Delft is more the brain of the knowledge centre. The City is very much influenced by the TU and has therefore a strong focus on R&D.
  • Also the city Delft will benefit of a knowledge centre. It will attract more investors, which will have a positive influence on the R&D companies and of course the TU.

The City Delft

  • Governing Body of the lowest level. Tasks/responsibilities are comparable to those of the ministries but are focussed on the city Rotterdam.
  • One of the most important stakeholders, because the city Rotterdam is directly influenced by the project. But mainly because Rotterdam is the industrial force (the harbour and all the companies etc that are in someway connected to this).
  • The city will be supportive of the project, because the goals of the project will have a positive effect on the city. A knowledge centre will for example attract more investors to Rotterdam.

6. B

  • Has a smaller role in the in the current initiatives concerning knowledge centre. Would be interested to play a more central especially because of the link with the practical side of the education.

Hogeschool Rotterdam A

  • With the knowledge centre the University is able to coordinate the curricula and program with the business on the employment market and the requirements of the modern international knowledge economy more effectively.
  • Mainly focussed on R&D.

TU Delft C

  • Everything related to employment. Especially national employees, but also international employees.

Other UniversitiesC

  • Again the stakeholders are very regionally focussed. Maybe more collaboration with other universities in the Netherlands could be interesting. Also more collaboration concerning the knowledge centre with international universities could be interesting. Especially with universities in other European countries, but also other countries. For example China.

  • The harbour is a large industrial area, where many different types of companies are active. A knowledge centre will mean more investors which will have a positive effect on all the companies that are linked to the activities in the harbour.
  • Transport
  • Agents, Brokers, Forwarders
  • Cargo
  • Shipping Related Services
  • Services & Products for the Industry
  • Business & General Services
  • Manufactures & Traders

Other Companies

  • Maybe the most important stakeholder concerning innovations are the R&D organizations. They are the ones that create the actual innovations. But they cant do this alone. They need collaboration with the other parties to create the actual innovation. A knowledge centre will mean more investors and more qualified personnel for the R&D companies. This way the companies are able to stay ahead of the competition.

R&D Organizations

  • One of the most important stakeholders. Rotterdam is currently the most important harbour in Europe and of course it wishes to stay this way. To stay ahead of the competition innovation is needed. To best way to create innovation is collaboration between the different parties.

Havenbedrijf Rotterdam N.V Impact Interest Stakeholder Group 9.

  • The Netherlands is a small country, but for such a small country it is very regionally focused. There are 2 main harbours in the Netherlands and collaboration between these two could have a positive effect on the national economy. Especially with the strong competition of Antwerpen and Hamburg.
  • The harbour of Amsterdam might be interested to share knowledge and work together with Rotterdam .

Harbor Amsterdam

  • Rotterdam port, as one of largest and most important port in the world, play a key sector for European economy and policy. These international trading companies are the basic of the position of Rotterdam. Whether they can success or not will influence the Rotterdam developing.

  • Deltalinqs represents the common interests of all the logistical and industrial companies in the Rotterdam port and industrial area.


  • Looks after the interest of the Middle and small companies in the Netherlands. Because most of the companies are in the small/middle segment MKB is an important organization.
