On the Road to Smart Industry

-- UPDATE 26 March 2020 --

Originally planned for 20-24 April and then postponed until 13-17 July 2020, we have now received the news that the Hannover Messse will not take place this year. The new date will be 12-16 April 2021.

We are currently considering our options and will update this event soon.

The Netherlands almost lost its manufacturing industry by the end of last century. By applying principles of Smart Industry, the Dutch industry has been transformed into one of the most innovative in the world today.

The European and Czech industry are facing many common challenges. Productivity is too low, the skills gap is increasing (also as a result of demographic developments), the linear economic business case needs to be replaced by a circular one, supported by a data-driven model. Ownership of data, its sharing and security are new issues that arise.

Dutch industry fit for the future

Currently, in the Netherlands, the Action Agenda Smart Industry 2020-2023 is being drafted (based on the first edition of 2014 and the second of 2018). Investments to a total of EUR 300 million by ecosystem partners, the establishment of more than 40 Field Labs, with more than 600 companies and 6,000 students involved, running 400 projects in parallel, with active participation in 17 EU projects, are among its achievements.

The Netherlands have been on the road to smart industry for a while. By sharing experiences, the Czech Republic and The Netherlands could mutually benefit from what has been done and learned.

Join the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands and the Netherlands-Czech Chamber of Commerce for the event:
