June 22-24, we were proud co-organizers of Industrial Technologies 2016: the largest networking conference in the field of new production technologies, materials, nanotechnology, biotechnology and digitalisation in Europe, with high level delegates. Industrial Technologies 2016 was a three days conference with a wide variety of plenary and interactive sessions, inspiring keynote speakers, case studies, eye-opening site visits and numerous opportunities to get in contact with new business partners.

Several M2i colleagues attended the conference and we’ve met a lot of new potential partners from Academia and Industry for (European) Research programs and our Human Capital Career program.

During the conference we also coordinated the Industrial Student Challenges.  During the Student Challenges students from all over the world worked together to find solutions for problems industrial companies are facing. Winner of the Student Challenges is team Solliance, with their remarkable solution for new solar cell applications. This was a great way for us to get acquainted with these scientists and help them with their future in the Netherlands with our Career Program.
