Dynamic table discussion with high-level stakeholders from Dutch Ministry of Defense & the Maritime Delta
Last July, the Municipality of Schiedam received the Defense Materiel Organization (DMO) in the Maritime Delta. During an interactive session at MINDbase, Mayor Cor Lamers and Director DMO and Vice Admiral TD Arie Jan de Waard had a fruitful discussion with each other and important stakeholders. They also met several innovative entrepreneurs from the maritime ecosystem.
Commissioned by the Municipality of Schiedam, the Maritime Sisters set-up this dynamic table discussion in which, among other things, the development of the maritime labor market, the Defense workforce and ‘the golden ecosystem’ were reviewed.
The Defence Materiel Organisation ensures that military personnel has modern, robust and safe materiel to work with. The DMO is involved in the procurement, maintenance and sale of materiel.
MINDbase is the defense innovation center in Rotterdam, which has the mission to stimulate innovation within and outside the defence organization via “Military Innovation by Doing”. It is a joint initiative of DMO (Defense Materiel Organization), TNO, NLR (Netherlands Aerospace Center) and MARIN (Maritime Research Institute Netherlands).
