Tata Consultancy Services has launched TCS Pace Port Amsterdam, a co-innovation and advanced research centre in the capital of the Netherlands.
This is the third co-innovation centre by TCS, after New York and Tokyo, in its network of physical-digital innovation hubs. The central objective of these centres is to provide a framework for the company's clients to ideate better, work on creative solutions faster, and focus efforts on more purpose-driven business needs.
TCS said that TCS Amsterdam innovation centre will have an ecosystem of partners from academia, government institutions, start-ups and technology providers and will serve as a hub for TCS teams to co-innovate with European customers, “guiding them through the discovery, definition, refinement and delivery phases of innovation”.
The centre will also provide rapid prototyping capabilities with a focus on finding and creating sustainable solutions.
“They believes that collaborative innovation, harnessing the collective knowledge of an ecosystem of partners can help companies realize their purpose and build a greater future,” said Sapthagiri Chapalapalli, head of TCS Europe.
“Our new Pace Port at Amsterdam will serve as a European innovation hub that helps our clients build long-term sustainability, which is a core driver of purposeful business.”
Diederik Samsom, Head of Cabinet for European Green Deal & Executive VP, European Commission Frans Timmermans, said, “As part of the European Commission, our aim for the Green New Deal is to create a comprehensive, ambitious plan for a green future driven by technology.
That is why I welcome initiatives like TCS PACE that can bring together digital capabilities, an innovative mindset and collaborative ecosystems to help European businesses work together to build a greener, more sustainable Europe.”
