Although Nijmegen is known for its 'health', the high-tech environment is just as impressive. It all started in 1953, when Philips N.V. moved into a facility in the city centre. Two years later, a large complex was built near Neerbosch. One factory after another was built here and it grew into one of the largest locations for semiconductor production in Europe.
Many years later, a strong high-tech network has formed on and around the former Philips semiconductor production site. With world-class players such as NXP, Ampleon and Nexperia. And an ever-growing ecosystem of promising chip companies, such as PinkRF, Trymax and NTS. Recently, the region welcomed the Chip Integration Technology Center: an open innovation centre focused on developing a new generation of chips.
