The Dutch long-term Technology Investment Roadmap

Management Precision-technology
Mikroniek 2010-5 by DSPE 8 April 2012

Earlier this year, a new long-term Technology Investment Roadmap was drawn for the Dutch high-tech industry. The roadmap provides an overview of trends in the fields of systems technology, component technology and manufacturing technology. Succeeding the 2004 Precision Technology Roadmap, which primarily focused on technology (‘precise to within a nanometer, quick to within a micrometer’), the 2010 roadmap has a more strategic approach and is of particular interest to various suppliers in the high-tech industry. Mikroniek included a preview of this roadmap in the February issue, which will now be presented in more detail. Later this year, Berenschot, DSPE and TNO Science and Industry will organise a Technology Investment Roadmap day for interested companies.
