Adriaan Rol (Orange Quantum Systems) is nominated for the Prins Friso Award 2022 by KIVI. KIVI strives to retain the title of Engineer (instead of just Master of Science), and every year searches an ‘Engineer of the Year’ for the Prins Friso Award, who has used his/her knowledge to focus on a social problem.
We at Orange Quantum Systems believe that Adriaan Rol is not only an excellent engineer but also an excellent entrepeneur. He combined in 2022 the recent developments in quantum technology, his technical expertise, and the ecosystem in Delft into a flourishing company and therefore was able to achieve social impact. His entrepreneurship is about having a deep interest in technology and a strong belief that you have to master the engineering skills to be able to lead a high-tech company.
