First steps towards a European Innovation Platform are taken
Last October a delegation of the Dutch Gasturbine Association (DGTA) visited their counterparts of the Berlin-Brandenburg area. Hosted by the Dutch embassy, experiences were exchanged and visits were paid to the Fraunhofer Institute and MTU Maintenance in Ludwigsfelde. One of the conclusions of this meeting was that both Berlin-Brandenburg and The Netherlands, as knowledge regions, can benefit of cooperation concerning shared R&D activities. Some rough ideas were listed, but it was necessary to meet again to continue the discussion. That is why the German representatives paid a return visit at the 17th and 18th of January to The Netherlands, hosted by DGTA.
