Human Capital Agenda
With an extensive and detailed range of activities, the Human Capital Agenda (HCA) Chemistry focuses on the realization of sufficient, well-qualified personnel in the chemical sector, now and in the future.
NEW: Top sectors continue cooperation on the theme of human capital!
The Top Sectors and Team ICT will continue their joint implementation in 2018 of the roadmap “Human Capital Top Sectors 2016 – 2020”. Smart Industry and the Building Agenda will join this partnership in 2018. The ambitions that the Top Sectors want to realize in 2018 are set out in the Work Plan 2018. In addition, the Top Sectors explicitly align their joint activities with societal challenges, key technologies and the themes of the National Science Agenda and Horizon 2020.
In the implementation, the Top Sectors work together with key partners such as the Technology Pact, Catapult, Healthcare Pact, SIA, NRO, VNO-NCW and the SER.
Human capital is the foundation The Top Sectors believe that human capital forms the basis of our prosperity, economy and innovations. Technology, digitization and globalization can no longer be ignored from our society. The pace at which new developments present themselves ensures that we are constantly faced with changes. For our sustainable growth capacity, it is crucial that all Dutch people can develop continuously. From young to old, low to highly educated and regardless of nationality.
In the work plan 2018, read what you can expect from the Top Sectors in 2018 from their cooperation on the theme of human capital.
HCA Roadmap 2017-2019
The title of the 2017-2019 HCA roadmap of the Top Sector Chemistry is: “Chemist 4.0: versatile excellenT”. Initiatives are aimed at further strengthening the interactions between educational institutions, students and companies. The proposed activities are a logical continuation of previous HCAs of the Top Sector Chemistry, with further expansion and further development.

HCA online dashboard
In the determination of the HCA of the coming period (2017-2019), the results of the labor market research carried out in 2016 by the Dialogic agency, commissioned by Holland Chemistry, were used. This is the second time that the chemical and process industries have identified how supply and demand of personnel will develop over the coming years.
On the basis of the labor market research an online dashboard Education-Labor Market chemistry has been set up. This can be found on www.onderwijsarbeidsmarktchemie.nl.
HCA talent programmes
The chemical industry needs talent to realize the ambitions of the sector. Who wants to develop his or her talent in chemistry can participate in the Holland Chemistry talent programs. These are available for students in chemistry, chemistry, process technology and analytical chemistry, at university or HBO.
The Top Sector Chemistry Talent Programs are an initiative of Holland Chemistry, VNCI, COAST, ISPT and NWO. In recent years, the Holland Chemistry Talent Program has successfully expanded under the leadership of these parties to an annual presentation to more than 100 higher vocational and university chemistry students. The Holland Chemistry Talent Programs have been set up to allow more students to opt for a study in chemistry and to increase the intake of qualified chemists to industry.
The bar is high: in order to qualify for a talent program, school performance, motivation and ambition must be of a high level. In addition, a broad interest is important; after all, chemistry fair students are role models and ambassadors for chemistry.
