A future in engineering gets closer for more and more young people
On Monday, May 31, 2021, the time had finally come. The tenth edition of the Dutch Technology Week kicked off. After many months of preparation, an interesting mix of online and in-person events was created. To safeguard the future of technology, this year’s edition will again focus on promoting this topic.
Staying on your toes in the semiconductor industry through collaboration
The semiconductor industry is on the rise. It is clear that the demand for chips, and therefore for products and services throughout the industrial chain, is at an unprecedented high. With the increasing computerization of society, the demand for ever more and better chips will only increase. Semiconductors are crucial to the economy. The Netherlands, in particular Brainport but also the cluster around Nijmegen, is clearly in the front row.
Rabobank commits to the Dutch Brainport region like never before
The Rabobank is serious about Brainport. This area in the southeast province of Brabant in The Netherlands is perhaps the most important region in Europe when it comes to innovative high-tech.
Brainport, the hub of the high-tech manufacturing industry in south east Brabant in The Netherlands, is growing as never before. One of the parties facilitating this growth is the Rabobank. This cooperative bank is pumping some 700 million euros into the further development of the Brainport region over the next two years. Last year, Rabobank already spent 300 million to support start-ups, scale-ups and other innovative projects. This money is in addition to the regular forms of funding.
