Brightlands Chemelot Talent Day
The first Brightlands Chemelot Talent Day will be held on November 10, 2017. By holding this event, Chemelot Industrial Park and Brightlands Chemelot Campus hope to introduce young talent to the many educational and career opportunities available at the site.
What is the event all about?
The Brightlands Chemelot Talent Day is an interactive day for students in intermediate and higher-level vocational and university-level technical programs. Together with over 25 companies and educational institutions, Chemelot Industrial Park and Brightlands Chemelot Campus will be giving presentations to these talents of the future. These students will have the opportunity to discover if they fit in with the unique Brightlands ecosystem through interactive sessions including lab tours, a Chemelot Industrial Park site tour, a Brightlands Campus tour, an innovation market, a job and internship market and personal conversations. The program will run from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., and most of the activities will be held at the Center Court.
Why is this day so important?
Limburg aims to become a world-class player in innovation and technology. The ambition of Chemelot Industrial Park and Brightlands Chemelot Campus is to become the most competitive and sustainable chemicals and materials community in Western Europe. In order to achieve this goal, the organizations need plenty of qualified students and employees. Unfortunately, recent research has shown that students and young professionals know very little about the educational and business possibilities at the location. With this event, initiators Chemelot Industrial Park, Brightlands Chemelot Campus, Maastricht University and CHILLabs hope to change all that.
