About us.

Stichting European Hyperloop Center.

The European Hyperloop Center is a not-for-profit open innovation center, located in Groningen – the Netherlands, to accelerate the hyperloop development. Founded in 2020, the EHC is a public-private initiative by the Province of Groningen, the City of Groningen and Hardt Hyperloop.

EHC is part of the Hyperloop Development Program, a public-private partnership between the Dutch Ministries of Economics & Climate and Infrastructure & Water Management, the Province of Groningen and a group of industry parties and knowledge and research institutions, dedicated to develop hyperloop transportation. The EHC is partly made possible through a grant from REP-SNN.
