The manufacturing industry of the future

RDM Rotterdam is future-proofing the port of Rotterdam! On the site of the docks of the former Rotterdamsche Droogdok Maatschappij (RDM), businesses, educational institutions, and research centres have joined forces in working on sustainable innovations for a smart port. It is a typical Rotterdam-style partnership: thinking and then doing!

Magnetic attraction

Entrepreneurs, students, researchers, and visitors. The dynamic environment of RDM Rotterdam* is unique. Everything breathes innovation here. It is a vibe that has a magnetic effect. Over forty companies, including Ampelmann, Franklin Offshore, RanMarine Technology, Energy Floors, and Studio RAP, have meanwhile settled on the site.

‘RDM Rotterdam is the number 1 place for innovation in Rotterdam’s port area; this is where the manufacturing industry of the future is shaped.’

Successful cross-pollination

The companies, schools, and researchers at RDM have high-tech facilities at their disposal, as well as each other’s expertise. This kind of cross-pollination leads to interesting collaborations and high-profile projects. The unique combination with the former submarine hangar and the conference centre is what makes RDM a place you cannot afford to miss. Like no other, this place embodies the values of Rotterdam. Make It Happen.

* The ‘RDM family’ also includes partners such as RDM Centre of Expertise from Rotterdam University, RDM Makerspace and RDM Events.
