The week is almost over!
On Friday the group had full schedule again. First they went to ASML. ASML provides chipmakers with everything they need – hardware, software and services – to mass produce patterns on silicon, helping to increase the value and lower the cost of a chip. The group had the opportunity to visit the experience center over there. The tour started with a promotion video and after that the group could see the technologies and machines by themselves in the experience center.
After the visit to ASML the talents went to Singularity University, where they got a very inspirational presentation and got to eat vegetables produced by city farming, which were very tasteful. After the healthy lunch the group went to Helmond, where they visited Huijbregts Groep. Huijbregts Groep excels at processing powder ingredients for the food industry in a high-quality manner. The group got an interesting tour through the factory and got to see with their own eyes what kind of machines they use.
After the tour the group got into an interesting discussion about food waste and more. After this last company visit the group had one more borrel at VANE Skybar, where they could meet up with the companies one more time.
