Dutch Technology week wants to show the positive side of technology

Thanks in part to closer cooperation with FME, the employers’ organisation for the technology industry, the Dutch Technology Week this year is bigger than ever. This is particularly visible in new events in Tilburg, Breda, Delft and Nijmegen, among others. “The heart of DTW, which this year will take place from 20 to 25 May, is still in Brainport Eindhoven, which is logical given the history of its origins, but the connection with other tech regions has been intensified,” says project manager Monique de Wit of Dutch Technology Week (DTW). “More and more organisations are finding us.”

With the slogan “Make Tech Yours“, FME and DTW have launched a campaign to make the Netherlands “tech-wise”. “The great thing is that this will help us make the week more ‘Dutch’.” At the end of the day, the central message remains the same, emphasizes De Wit: “The Dutch Technology Week is there to show the positive side of technology as a problem solver”.

Large national events, with guests from all over the Netherlands, are also increasingly organising their meetings during the DTW. De Wit: “Immediately after the grand opening in the large halls of Brainport Industries Campus the annual event of the Technology Pact takes place. A great opportunity for the top industrialists in the Netherlands to become acquainted with BIC and the high-tech ecosystem of the Brainport region, as long as they have not already done that.”

New in this DTW edition is Female Tech Heroes on the High Tech Campus, the Smart Industry Zuid event, TNO’s Semicon innovation day in Delft and Startups-to-Watch, the annual event with which Innovation Origins puts the startups in the spotlights through the presentation of the Gerard & Anton Awards. In addition, due to the approaching European elections, there is a debate with politicians about innovation, digitisation and the skills needed for this.

All about the Dutch Technology Week can be read on the organisation’s website.
