On Tuesday 26 September a delegation of more than 70 Ambassadors and Trade Counsellors of many Embassies in The Hague honored The Hague Security Delta with a visit during second edition of the Cyber Security Week (CSW17). The visit was organised in close co-operation with TradeCouncellors.nl and InnovationQuarter. Director Marion Verboom of TradeCounsellors, deputy mayor Saskia Bruines and Chris van Voorden of Director Foreign Investments at InnovationQuarter welcomed the Ambassadors at the HSD Campus.
In addition executive director Richard Franken explained how the community of businesses, governments and knowledge institutions work together on innovation and knowledge in the field of safety and security. Core of the Dutch security cluster is the HSD Campus: the national innovation centre of the Dutch security cluster, with living labs, education and training facilities, flexible office space and meeting rooms. Businesses, governments and knowledge institutions from across the country collaborate to harvest knowledge, and develop products and services that contribute to a safer and more secure world.
The Ambassadors and their Trade Counsellors were stimulated to participate more in the Cyber Security Week next year and bring more and more companies over to The Netherlands to exchange knowledge and do business with each other. In addition the ambassadors and trade counsellors joined the seminar 'Getting to know the Dutch Cyber Security Market'.
