[2022-04-20] Japan meets Nijmegen – City of Health & Tech
Last week on Wednesday 20 April we inspired the Japanse business community in the Netherlands about the Health and Tech / Semicon opportunities in Nijmegen. We thank Oost NL for co organizing this event, and HFML-FELIX, Novio Tech Campus, Ampleon, NTS-Group, MindAffect and Cardiomo for all of your inspiring presentations!
This event is for Dujat members and invitees only.
If your company is member of Dujat and you did not receive the invitation, please contact our office.
DUJAT and Oost NL, East Netherlands Development Agency invite you to attend our upcoming event in the oldest city of the Netherlands, Nijmegen, on Wednesday 20 April from 13:30 – 18:00.
Though the oldest city, Nijmegen has a young vibe and was ranked in the top 10 Best Youth Destinations in Europe in 2022. The city is also internationally known for its strong Health ecosystem. It has a solid knowledge base with Radboud University, Radboudumc and HAN. They are a key source for knowledge and know-how on themes like genetics, infectious diseases, nutrition and neurosciences. This knowledge is put to practice by Nijmegen’s both large and smaller companies.
Within Health, Nijmegen has defined three main innovation areas: Drug Discovery & Development, Digital Health and Neuroscience/Healthy Brain.
For this event’s programme, we will be visiting multiple innovative organizations. As always, Dujat arranges bus transport from Amstelveen and back. If you wish to make use of this, please let us know accordingly when you register.
Did you know that Professor Andre Geim and professor Konstantin Novoselov have been awarded the 2010 Nobel Prize for Physics for the discovery of graphene, the thinnest material in the world? They explored the material in the High Field Magnet Laboratory.
The most important way in which HFML-FELIX contributes to the advancement of society and economy is through cutting-edge research into new materials with strong technological potential, and societal challenges as health, energy and smart materials.
The high field magnet laboratory (HFML) generates the highest possible continuous magnetic fields and the Free-Electron Lasers at FELIX Laboratory produces intense short-pulsed infrared and Terahertz laser light for in-house and external users.
Here, we will hear a presentation about the HFML-FELIX, and we will also have a tour around the Facility.
Novio Tech Campus: Where Innovation Works: the hotspot for Health and High Tech innovation in the Netherlands. Open innovation between researchers and entrepreneurs in Health and High Tech leads to growth, boosting the development of products and services for a better, healthier world. From researching developing a drug against COVID-19, to World-class chip companies working on a new generation of chips. You will hear about the current campus and the developments which are planned in the near future.
After the presentation, we divide the group in two smaller groups to visit one of the following companies: Ampleon, the Leading Global Partner in RF Power, or NTS, which is active in prototyping and small series of optical and mechatronic systems and modules. Because each group will visit only one company, it is possible to let us know your preference when you register.
We will close the day with short pitches of a number of innovative start-ups, followed by networking drinks and the opportunity to get to know each other and these start-up’s better.
