Teach it

Get to know the youth. Providing attention to their personal interest and aptitude creates more motivation, fun and less dropout at schools and businesses. At Futurum, professionals of the future, discover their true talent with inspirational encounters, innovative tests and exciting confrontations. And with that talent they can get started in our region.

Work it

Futurum challenges. Education, entrepreneurs and the government join hands on our workfloor. What do we give young people for their future? Meet each other, learn from each other, work with each other. During Futurum there are several B2B activities to be enjoyed. Together, we send visitors on an exploration tour along all the possibilities within (future) sectors.

Live it

Enjoy the amazing developments of local and international startups, even enjoy the taste of the future at one of the Food Trucks and challenge young people to get started with their talents. Sharing knowledge is key, but there is also plenty of space for fun and creativity. The more the better! Heerlen sets a stage for innovative companies and interesting program components. Together we organize the event of the future and set up routes alongside the pillars on which it is built.
