Dirk Jan van den Berg new chairman of 3TU.Federation

Monday, 18 November 2013
On 11 November, Dirk Jan van den Berg will take over the chairmanship of the 3TU.Federation. Arno Peels announced last summer that he would not be available for a second term as chairman of the TU/e and has therefore resigned the chairmanship of the 3TU.Federation.

Van den Berg has previously served as chairman of the 3TU.Federation, until 1 January 2012.

The 3TU.Federation makes an important contribution to the development of technology education programmes and to technology research in the Netherlands. "We have worked hard together over the past few years to shorten time to graduation and boost success rates. The hard figures show that those efforts are bearing fruit", says Van den Berg.

 "We have an excellent reputation in research too. The business sector knows where to find us, both to recruit talented technology graduates and stimulate technological innovations. We've joined forces in ten subject areas, and are focusing jointly on Europe, among others. The results will be presented on 6 December at the 3TU.Innovation & Technology Conference in Eindhoven.
