October 31, 2019 Lunch Talk What on EARTH?

“My passion is to make the invisible visible”, says Eva Kars, CEO and Founder EARTH Integrated Archaeology


The Swedish Chamber of Commerce and Epicenter Amsterdam are very pleased to welcome you to our Lunch Talk “What on EARTH?” a combined founder talk and presentation of the unique and exciting work by Archaeological consultancy company EARTH.


“Vision and passion led me to start a company, says Eva Kars. It was not new for me to be a director or to have responsibility for a department. However, it was the first time all the responsibilities rested on me, in particular the financial aspects. The adventure of EARTH had already begun in 2007, before the crisis. In 2008 I was ready to start, and EARTH was founded. The crisis began as well. In this presentation I will enlighten how I managed to transform an underappreciated company to one that is much respected on the market today.”


Together with Project Manager Timo Vanderhoeven I will show a short film about one of our latest exiting projects and discuss the importance and necessity of Heritage Risk Assessments. There is a tremendous amount of important information in the earth under us and lots of important lessons to learn. In this film EARTH will show you how they, with a unique working ethic and by using innovative techniques and working with different multidisciplinary teams, takes you back 1000s and 1000s of years. They investigate every inch and analyze what it tells us by using the latest unique and innovative techniques.  In this way the client receives information  about the developments in the area, going way back in time even to before the time of the ice age. What is the earth telling us? And what measurements have to be taken by the client before talking on construction or building a new railway?


Welcome to the fascinating world of EARTH Integrated Archaeology
We are looking forward to showing you more about the amazing research we have done in the Flevoland area and the city of Almere,
just around the corner of Amsterdam!

Launch: TechBridge Sweden/The Netherlands

Women in Tech


Save the Date: 25th of November


Time: 15.30-19.00


Location: Epicenter Amsterdam


Number of seat available: 100-150


TechBridge Sweden/The Netherlands is a concept initiated by the Swedish Embassy in The Netherlands, Swedish Chamber of Commerce, Epicenter Amsterdam (and StartupDelta?) with the ambition to increase the knowledge about Sweden and The Netherlands as two world-leading nations when it comes to technological innovation. The objective is to build strategic partnerships between the parties in a dynamic forum where the message about our innovative countries is conveyed through shared experiences and best practices. The content created will be spread in a serie of podcasts highlighting interesting and dynamic tech related subjects from both Sweden and the Netherlands. The target group are prominent Dutch and Swedish investors, decision makers, academia and media.


This first edition of TechBridge Sweden/The Netherlands is highlighting the potentials of “Women in Tech” and will be a pre-event to the European Women Technology Conference in Amsterdam taking place on November 26-27th, 2019. This edition of TechBridge has been designed to inspire, celebrate and connect Women in Tech. We will deep dive into what the challenges are for Women in Tech, what we can learn from each other, how we can encourage more girls to choose technology studies and how we change the patterns of investors.


Sweden and the Netherlands have traditionally very strong trade relations and in recent years the tech industry has impacted the bilateral bond even more and the traffic is high. Both Amsterdam and Stockholm are widely described as the tech start-up capitals and rank high in most internationally recognized lists of competitiveness and innovation capacity.


The second edition of TechBridge will cover another challenging theme in tech and will take place in Stockholm next year.
