Martijn de Graaff
Martijn is in charge of programme management and business development for the VoltaChem Shared Innovation Programme on Power-2-X, and for cluster management at TNO’s programme on industrial transformation. “Transformation of our society, and more specifically the industry, towards CO2 neutrality will take a tremendous collaborative effort of public and private stakeholders, nationally and internationally. It is my aim to connect people across disciplines and organisations, employing the latest innovation, technology and business insights, in order to help them accelerate towards a carbon-neutral society.”
Martijn finds his drive from working in complex high-tech environments on the interface between multiple technologies, products, businesses and market segments. He prefers working in teams with motivated people on projects that are relevant to our society and a sustainable future, but at the same time have clear business potential.
Prior to his current role, he worked in various business development roles related to innovation in chemistry, chemical process technology and high-tech equipment. He is deeply involved in setting up public-private partnerships at regional, national and trans-national level, with a special focus on electrification and industrial transformation in north-western Europe.
