Commissioner Hahn visits Dutch province of Noord-Brabant


On Friday 3 February, Commissioner Johannes Hahn visited the Dutch province of Noord-Brabant, starting with a visit to the Tilburg University, where the cooperation between academia, the business world and regional and local political leaders was discussed.
He then went to the High Tech Campus in Eindhoven, where with funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) a state of the art research and development infrastructure has been set up, very much in line with the policy goals for Cohesion Policy investments as presented by the European Commission for the period after 2013. Commissioner Hahn described the developments in Eindhoven as exemplary for the future of EU Regional Policy.
In the evening he attended a dinner with the employers' organisation VNO-NCW.
