Get to know the most beautiful IT companies in the North on December 9 during the annual IT conference with the theme: mobility. Especially for up-and-coming IT talents. Innovatiecluster Drachten is here!

At this annual event, students and technical talents are inspired around the theme of mobility. For example, with flying cars and autonomous flying drones. A few appealing guests take the participants on a tour of the latest developments in our airspace. Of course you can immediately broaden or deepen your knowledge. For example, by following a lecture tour at Amazon and Microsoft. In addition, the Top Dutch Solar Racing team shows how you can cover great distances using only solar energy.

Track session

Especially for IT congress we give a workshop about robotics. This is given by Joost Krebbekx (program manager ICD) and Willem Kaal (BD). We are also present during the chat and network sessions in a special ICD booth.

Just like Innovatiecluster Drachten, makes every effort to retain technical talent for the Northern Netherlands. She does this by introducing students and companies to each other. For example, through mutual exchange of students and (re)training of employees. But this also includes knowledge sessions and talent development. Because where in the Netherlands can you find good IT jobs in combination with a high quality of life, versatile education, a lot of culture and spacious and affordable housing? In short, a region with an excellent balance between working, living and living.
