Winner Brigitte Lamers
It was an extra festive ceremony for Brigitte Lamers last Friday. Because not only did she receive a check for 9,000 euros during MomenTUm 2022 - to be spent on her personal development - it was also a good reason to visit the Netherlands again. She has been working as team leader for Innovations and Technology at the Swiss high-tech company Metrohm for a year now.
