According to Benschop, there is already close cooperation, ‘but we are now also physically close to each other’. ‘People from ASML from my research and the students will meet each other in the common room and I expect that a lot of beautiful things will blossom.’

Physically

According to Benschop, this physical proximity is important in the field of research, especially when it comes to problem solving and generating new ideas. The immediate proximity will also have a drawing effect on new talent, thinks Benschop. According to him, research should be conducted off the beaten track, and he sees no better place for this than an academic setting. ‘With young people who don’t allow themselves to be distracted by old people who keep saying: this doesn’t work, I’ve already tried this’. Benschop also hopes to be an impulse for all kinds of activity in the region.

‘By collaborating even more intensively (…) our innovation engine will undoubtedly be provided with new fuel’
