News | April 19, 2018
The collaborating high-tech companies have won the FC Learning Company of the Year title with the Health Tech MBO excellence programme, which Innovatiecluster Drachten is carrying out together with Friesland College and ROC's Friese Poort. This happened during the final of the FC Awards 2018 in Leeuwarden. According to chairman Kor Visscher (Innovatiecluster Drachten), this appreciation is mainly due to the efforts of both courses. “It helps us to build solid foundations for the future together. This is often not a matter of course, with our short-term focus. It is all the better that we have set up a successful Health Tech excellence program together with the MBO courses.”
Within the training company Philips/Innovatiecluster Drachten, students work on solutions for major challenges in the future. Two students – Joas Nicolai and Jelmer de Jong – presented one of their projects: developing a special drinking cup for people with Parkinson's disease.
