The (high-tech) industry is closely connected to ALTEN. It is the sector in which ALTEN Netherlands started its activities.
The Dutch high-tech sector is a progressive, highly internationally-oriented, knowledge-intensive sector where a lot of research takes place and high-quality products and services are developed. In addition, almost all of today’s products contain a bit of technology, which underlines the enormous impact of the sector.
The (high-tech) industry plays an essential role in devising and realizing solutions for global societal challenges. These are challenges in the area of mobility, health, sustainable energy, safety and climate change. Technologies in which the Dutch business sector stands out include micro / nano electronics, nanotechnology, photonics, advanced production and semiconductors.
Brainport, with Eindhoven as its heart, is seen as the world’s leading innovative technology region and the smartest region in the Netherlands. Market leaders and startups in the technology sector can also be found in the east of the Netherlands. A good example are the companies located at the High Tech Systems Park in Hengelo. In Zuid-Holland we see such a combination of forces in the ‘Delft Technology Park’ and RoboValley. The latter is the innovation hub and the center for robotics in Europe. Increasingly, industry, education and the government are joining forces to accelerate innovations and stimulate collaboration.
ALTEN is proud to work together as a driver of innovation with top technology companies throughout the Netherlands, varying from market leaders to innovative startups.
