CHILL was created as a collaboration between the founding fathers SABIC, DSM, Leeuwenborgh Opleidingen, Arcus College, Zuyd University of Applied Sciences, and Maastricht University.
As a center of expertise and a center for innovative professional skills, CHILL helps to shape and expand the top sector policy in the Netherlands.
Innovations and smart solutions for themes like food scarcity and sustainability are becoming increasingly important. While the modern chemical industry can certainly play a key role in this, it is also a knowledge-intensive and capital-intensive sector, which can make it difficult to introduce innovations. However, by merging specializations and facilities and working in a cross-disciplinary way, the possibilities truly are endless. Encourage researchers and end users to collaborate, make facilities available, and ask questions. Combine the fresh perspectives of young talents with the valuable experience of seasoned professionals. Develop and test. The result: new, meaningful, valuable, and practical products that companies can bring to market. Products that make a real difference for you, for us, and for the world.
CHILL offers an innovative learning, work, and research environment where companies (from start-ups to multinationals) and knowledge institutes (from intermediate vocational education institutes to universities) can work together to develop new knowledge and new products. We ensure that enough highly-trained professionals enter the sector and contribute to highlighting the importance of modern chemistry and its role in a sustainable society.
The Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Sittard-Geleen is known worldwide as one of the largest and most innovative chemical innovation sites in Europe. This is the foremost reason why CHILL decided to settle here. Would you like to visit us? For directions and information about accessing the campus , see our contact page .
