As of today, Angelien Eijsink is the new chair of the Netherlands Industries for Defence and Security (NIDV). “Security is something you create together and concerns us all. Our men and women in uniform deserve the best equipment for what they do to protect us as citizens” says Eijsink. “I think it is great to contribute to the successful cooperation between government, companies and knowledge institutions of the Golden Ecosystem. For a safe society in a safe world, we need each other now more than ever.”
