On Tuesday 27 February during the ‘Big Science Business Forum’ in Copenhagen organized by CERN, the ‘Partners for International Business’ (PIB) programme ‘Science to Business’ was signed. During the coming three years, a consortium of six partners in the ‘High Tech Systems and Materials’ (HTSM) sector, including companies and knowledge institutes, will collaborate with the Dutch government to strengthen the position of the Dutch Big Science industry within Big Science organisations in France and Switzerland. This will provide more opportunities for the Netherlands to share and further develop its well high tech solutions for global challenges. The Netherlands is well known for its innovative technology and it’s a frontrunner with regard to public and private research as well as open innovation. Dutch companies, research institutes and the Dutch government collaborate to foster knowledge and create innovative technology. Through the PIB programme the cluster aims to combine forces with France and Switzerland and strengthen the position of Dutch companies within Big Science organisations including CERN, ITER and ESRF.
