ENSCHEDE

5 days of creativity, technology and innovation

THE FUTURE
BELONGS TO
THE
CURIOUS

The first edition of the Dutch Innovation Days will take place from 26 to 30 May. The five-day innovation festival in Enschede is bursting with innovation, inspiration, eye candy and interactive exhibitions.

 

How do innovations really come about? Why do some brilliant ideas fail? Why is it that so many iconic Dutch pioneers lived and / or studied in Enschede? And how do the innovations conceived at the drawing board eventually reach your home?

The Dutch Innovation Days (partially) occur in our incredible online surroundings to immerse yourself with exciting knowledge. If RIVM gives us a go, there will be a physical meet and greet to connect with your fellow DIDers! You will find yourself in a world full of innovations, inspirations, and groundbreaking ideas during the connect days.

Saturday the 29th of May is when most activities physically take place, with Enschede as a playground to explore technology, creativity and innovations. Some of the activities will be online to follow the RIVM guidelines. We are looking forward to giving you an unforgettable day full of inspiration and interactive exhibitions!
