Open information city

Deventer has a remarkably large number of consultants and engineering firms, companies in the field of ICT, internet and content as well as related education at Saxion University of Applied Sciences. The information industry is currently the fastest growing industry in Deventer and good for 21% of the jobs. That is no coincidence: information has been a trademark of Deventer for centuries. From the first publishers, printers and oldest scientific library in The Netherlands, until the book market and the library-innovation lab of today.

Knowledge boulevard

Tauw, Witteveen+Bos, Goudappel Coffeng. You will not find such a high density of prominent engineering firms within a few square kilometres anywhere else in The Netherlands. Add Saxion University of Applied Sciences and the regional training centre Aventus and these companies and educational institutes together form a boulevard of knowledge that would make many bigger cities green with envy.
