About Us

The Dommel Valley Group (DVG) was founded in 1998 by a group of Learning Professionals from several High Tech companies in the Dommel Valley region, such as Philips, ASML, Océ and Assembléon, and the Technical University of Eindhoven. DVG still is what it started out to be: a group of enthusiastic Learning Professionals interested in sharing knowledge, best practices and visions on learning practices, now and in the future.

DVG organizes a recurring symposium that allows Learning Professionals from all across the Netherlands to attend for just a minor fee. Attending this Dommel Valley Event is a must for anyone interested in knowing the L&D status quo and future ambitions of some of the Netherlands most successful high-tech companies.

 John Jeuken ASML  Chairman
