Tech Showcase ResourcesCompany Profiles
For the past 18 months, the Detroit Regional Chamber has been building a relationship with the Smart Mobility eco-system in the Netherlands. The connection began as a result of outreach from Louis Piet, Consul General to the Kingdom in the Netherlands in Chicago. As our communities exchanged information about our mutual focuses and activities in next-generation mobility, it quickly became apparent that our ecosystems could benefit from further exchange of ideas and collaboration.
This initial conversation led to numerous other Dutch partners joining the discussion, including: Automotive NL, the Brainport Region, Eindhoven University of Technology and Connekt. As a result of this outreach, the Destination Detroit team hosted a Dutch Smart Mobility Delegation consisting of 25 mobility experts on November 1st and 2nd. Companies included NXP, AON, TNO, ARS T&TT, DITCM, Greenlots, Goudappel, OC Mobility, Q-Park, Technolution and V-Tron.
The information contained below is a summary of the delegation, their visit and information exchanged. We will continue to document our region’s growing partnership with the Netherlands.
