About us

We connect people around Europe

Kadans Science Partner

Kadans Science Partner focuses on bringing people together to overcome global challenges.

Across Europe, we have built a network of clients, partner organisations, and innovative minds, active in Life Sciences & Health, Food, Energy & Digital Economy. All determined to find solutions to the global challenges we face today. All determined to make a difference.

Therefore, we invest, develop and operate specialised assets to complement science clusters across Europe. These are not just standard workspaces. We create environments in which scientific organisations can thrive. Specialised assets that are curated to suit your needs and support future growth.

Within each specialised asset and wider science cluster you’ll find organisations of all sizes, which can help you scale or support you as you need. Whether you need access to talent, research, or capital, we can connect you with the right people, in the right organisation.

We have over 20 years of experience

Founded in the 1990s, the specialisation of Kadans Science Partner truly began with the 2009 acquisition of BioPartner Center Wageningen, an organisation established in 2000 to support the valorisation of fundamental research conducted at the Wageningen University & Research Campus, marking our first multi-tenant buildings for start-ups, scale-ups and corporate R&Ds. Since then, we have curated a much wider offering that is built for innovation. In 2010, Kadans Science Partner was founded to reflect this evolution, expanding our development focus to knowledge intensive real estate investments in the Netherlands. Kadans now operates as an international leader in the UK, Germany, Belgium, France, and most recently Spain, servicing over 400 clients within 27 science clusters in 6 countries.

Backed by AXA IM – Real Assets since 2020, our network continues to grow as we develop more locations and support more science clusters across Europe. Our market pioneering approach reflects Kadans’ objective to become the European HUB for all stakeholders in the life sciences sector in the near future.

Vision & core values

At Kadans, we aim to bring people together to overcome global challenges. Our core values are connect, collaborate and innovate.

  • Connect
    We believe in connecting people with shared goals and ambitions. We actively organise oppurtunities for them to meet and foster our community to enable meaningful conversations and lasting relationships. In collaboration with our partners, the Kadans community supports and strengthens the innovation ecosystem.
  • Collaborate
    We situate our real estate solutions in close proximity to resources and like-minded people and organisations to support collaboration. We design spaces that stimulate knowledge-sharing between employees, but also other organisations within the same building. Not only do we stimulate collaboration between our clients, we also actively seek collaboration with partners to build our network.
  • Innovate
    Kadans works as a single provider, we support our clients with all the facilities and resources they need. Ultimately, everything we do is aimed at allowing organisations in Life Sciences & Health, Food, and Energy and Digital Economy to do what they do best: Innovate.
