after chief product and technology officer of ASML Martin van den Brink, aims to underline the success of system
architecture in the development of high-tech machines in the Dutch high-tech systems industry. The succes of the
technology shows that our country plays a leading role in this field.

To underline the award we organize a Gala Dinner. Join us for an evening of excellent networking, fine dining and
entertainment in an appropriate ambiance. From 4:00 pm PhDs from technical Universities of the Netherlands will schow their graduation work. Enjoy a word of welcome and a drink at 6:00 pm and a delicious dinner will
