The general director of Holland High Tech, Fred van Roosmalen, will step down by the end of 2019. Leo Warmerdam, currently the program director of the top consortium for knowledge and innovation (TKI) of the top sector High-Tech Systems and Materials (HTSM), will take his place. Van Roosmalen will stay on as a strategic advisor for Holland High Tech.

Van Roosmalen has been involved with the top sector innovation policy since the very beginning. Using his experience in national and international networks for public-private research, he laid the foundation for the top sector’s roadmaps and knowledge and innovation agenda. He started the Stichting TKI HTSM, which became Holland High Tech.

“The driving force of our top sector are the key technologies. They provide economic value and solutions to the societal challenges we face globally. Both the business community and The Hague must make structural investments in this area,” says Van Roosmalen. “Holland High Tech’s task is to give direction to all parties involved. And to only intervene when and where necessary.”
