Digitalisation and opportunities
Almere is a young and dynamic city with over 200,000 inhabitants. An ambitious city, with a lot going on and lots still to happen, because our city will continue to grow to as many as 350,000 inhabitants. A city that’s not just a great place to live, but a great place to start a business. The economy is changing, along with the digitalisation of society. Big data analysis, Artificial Intelligence (AI), blockchain, 3D printing, cloud computing and storage and the Internet of Things (IoT) are all concepts that are becoming ever more important in our daily lives. Digitalisation is of huge importance as a source of growth, innovation and new industry.
Almere & Technology
Almere is well ahead as a player in the Dutch technology sector:
- Both large and small companies working on IoT applications and the utilisation of platform tech.
- A college with excellent IT courses
- Within easy reach of Amsterdam with its large tech sector
- Fast commuter connections and space for businesses and data centres
This makes us a good breeding ground for new initiatives, training facilities, national and international industry, and events specialising in the tech sector. Also, because Almere is such a new city, there are loads of great opportunities to personally help build the future!
At easy walking distance from Almere Central Station, just to one side of our town centre, accessible to and from the A6 and surrounded by parkland, the development of an exciting ICT hub is happening right now. Businesses focussing on ICT will profit from a combined data centre facility here, including workspace and all the advantages of an ICT community. The community will be seen as a sort of eco-system that binds businesses and colleges together, inspiring each other. The more participants, the more expertise and the greater the effect in terms of growth and innovation.Read more (Dutch only)
