On the 26st of March, the Indian Embassy organized the India Seminar on prospects for the Indo-Dutch economic cooperation in science & technology at the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven. This seminar was the first of its kind in the Brabant region. Around 180 people joined this seminar, in which the strengthening of the cooperation between India and the Netherlands was emphasized. We were very honored to welcome the Ambassador of India, Mr. Venu Rajamony.
During this seminar, an advisory letter on the strengthening of the cooperation between India and the Netherlands in the field of science, technology and innovation was presented. This letter is drawn up by the Advisory Council for Science, Technology and Innovation (AWTI) and was presented by the Ambassador of India. The advisory letter encourages the Dutch government to take the cooperation in the field of knowledge and innovation with India to a higher level.
“India welcomes the increasing cooperation with the Netherlands. Both countries have significant strengths that can complement each other.” - Mr. Venu Rajamony, Ambassador of India
The mayor of Eindhoven, Mr. John Jorritsma, was also present during this seminar and welcomed the Indian Ambassador. He adds: “India and the Netherlands can and definitely should cooperate much better in the field of science and technology.”
The day continued with a keynote from Mr. Jeroen Tas, Executive Vice-President from Philips and Mr. D. Smit, Chief Scientist and Vice President from Shell. Both speakers shared some interesting thoughts on their activities in India and their involvement with the Indian community.
