Harry Webers is CEO of Dutch engineering firm Witteveen+Bos since april 2003. After graduating (cum laude) in Sanitary Engineering at the Agricultural University Wageningen in February 1983, he joined Witteveen+Bos. Harry has held various positions in the company, including head of the branch office Maastricht (1986-1995) and the department Environment (1996-2006). In 2001 Witteveen+Bos launched the The Witteveen+Bos Art+Technology Award to mark the firm’s 55th anniversary. The award goes to a visual artist whose work unites the disciplines of art and technology in an exceptional manner and for whom engineering is far more than a means to an end. The award consists of a cash prize of €15,000, publication of a book dedicated to the winner and an exhibition of his/her work in the Bergkerk church in Deventer. Among the winners of the The Witteveen+Bos Art+Technology Award are Dick Raaijmakers, Geert Mul en Theo Jansen. This year’s winner is Angelo Vermeulen.

The talk was recorded on TodaysArt 2012 Symposium: Bright Collisions – ART / TECHNOLOGY / INDUSTRY: FUTURE COLLABORATIONS
