From 15 - 20 of May 2017, the sixth edition of the Dutch Technology Week (DTW) will take place. During this week the most amazing and innovative technology stories will be told.

The high-tech industry delivers a lot of great performances, and we are very proud of that! To share this pride companies, government, and knowledge institutes work together for a week full of technological surprises. During the DTW everyone can see, feel and experience how promising and stimulating it is to contribute to inventions that change the world. For example, most of the smartphones and tablets use chips that are made with machines of ASML. Are you flying from Schiphol to Barcelona? Then your baggage will be transported with the baggage handling systems of Vanderlande from Veghel. And the smart pill from Philips knows, thanks to its ‘built-in navigation’, exactly where in the body a medicine is needed.

Mission and goals of the Dutch Technology Week
