Jelmer: a catalyst for innovation

Engineering and construction challenges in large infrastructure projects are becoming increasingly complex. In addition to growing demand for sustainable design and construction, modern engineering techniques require a more robust combination of education and training than previous generations. The engineering and construction sector needs more generalists who know both about technology and can incorporate a variety of disciplines in their work. Fortunately, many young people find today’s engineering challenges exciting, fun and incredibly fascinating. Jelmer, a recent member of the Netherlands Water Partnership (NWP), has found a way to harness their drive and share it with organisations looking to future-proof their operations. Pieter Dekker, Business Developer at Jelmer, says partnerships that incorporate young talent will accelerate transition and enhance collaboration within the sector.
