Investment in engineering education provides boost to Dutch chip sector



The University of Twente is developing a plan together with institutions in scientific and vocational education in the Groningen, Delft, Eindhoven and Twente regions to educate more technical talent. This is needed to strengthen and preserve the Netherlands' chip sector. The cabinet presented plans to this end last week. The so-called 'Beethoven' project includes a substantial investment in engineering education. A one-off 450 million euros is available for education for the period until 2030, and after that, structurally around 80 million euros per year.
