About

Briskr is all about health and high tech. Did you know that 30% of Nijmegens population works in health care? Or that this is where semiconductors have been produced since 1955? With global companies like NXP, Ampleon and Nexperia in high tech and world renowned healthcare organisations like Radboudumc and Maartenskliniek we have a strong base in the Nijmegen area.
