Talent for Top Technology
The South Netherlands is bursting at the seams with innovation. There is a long tradition of technical ingenuity here. Take, for example, classic inventions and applications such as the first overseas radio broadcast, the video phone, electronic music, and the CD. More recent examples are the LED lamp, Blue Ray Disc and the MRI scanner.
This top technology originates from a solid technologic base and high private expenditure on R&D. Many high tech residents (knowledge institutions and the industry) have found their way to the region, such as the Eindhoven University of Technology, Holst Center, Philips, DSM, TomTom, ASML, Océ, Sabic and FEI.
In a climate of open innovation, top scientists, designers, producers, and marketeers are doing complementary work for our main industries: High Tech Systems & Materials, Food, Automotive, Life Sciences and Design.
