High-Tech Committee



The innovative Dutch high-tech sector is vital to meeting the global challenges of today! The Netherlands has a  culture of creativity, pragmatism, entrepreneurship, openness and collaboration, which is a perfect fit for the high-tech systems and materials (HTSM) sector. This multi-disciplinary approach by Dutch companies and researchers results in solutions to the challenges society is facing today in the areas of ageing society, security, renewable energy, mobility and the environment.


The members of the High-Tech Committee of DutchCham have a shared expertise from design and R&D to manufacturing. The committee is inclusive for all, Dutch, Singaporean or other, even if not a member of DutchCham (yet). Join one of our meetings, which are organized once every two to three months and are centered around “quest” from one of the members and a visit to one of the member’s companies. Furthermore the High-Tech Committee organizes topical events throughout the year with presentations and sharing from experts.


 Key objectives

  • Provide a platform for companies active in this sector in Singapore (and SEA) for info sharing and networking;
