Maurice Geraets


Maurice Geraets has 25 years of experience in the IT and electronics industry and has been working at NXP Semiconductors since 2002. In his current position, he focuses on disruptive innovations for 'secure connections for a smarter world'. This concerns e.g. intelligent transport systems (ITS) and automated driving. Next to his role at NXP, Maurice is active in the governance of the 1 billion USD Dutch SmartwayZ program, is board member of several associations on automotive and mobility, is member of the Corporate Partnership Board of the OECD International Transport Forum and is member of the management committee of the European industry association AENEAS.



Savvy manufacturers are conceiving and creating the intelligent industrial enterprise of the future. They do so by merging their information technology (IT) and operational technology (OT) domains, creating next-generation smart systems to optimise manufacturability, improve operations, enhance customer support, and analyse real-time data provided by the Industrial Internet of Things (IoT). These disruptive technologies are exciting, offering opportunities ranging from innovative R&D to digital supply networks. But with this excitement also comes complexity, which can easily seem overwhelming. However, it does not have to be.


Program will follow soon.
