Program

Feel like an inspiring conversation? An opportunity for new collaborations? Or just a stimulating encounter with a good glass of wine? Join us at the Eindhoven Innovation Café. The spot where people from the arts, design, research and technology interact. We are aiming for a weekly program full of inspiring pitches, expert talks, discussions as well as workshops, lasting up to half an hour parallel to the drinks. English spoken. Of course.

EHV INNOVATION CAFÉ #20

17:30 – 19:30 pm Drinks, bites and talks

17:45 pm Introduction by Hans Kokhuis-Corsten on Tech & Creativity
17:55 pm Idea Brewery Workshop by Colin Burke, Gijs Habraken en Hans Kokhuis-Corsten

In the context of Dutch Technology Week, Hans, Gijs and Colin join us for a workshop by the name of ‘The Idea Brewery’. With the purpose to innovate together in a fun environment with some drinks: using an age-old process, to ferment those ideas, distill and bottle them to mature over time. Dream enabler Colin Burke (ZEYBRA MAG): “Fermenting ideas together, opening space for creativity, expressing our authentic message from ideation to fruition. Drink beer for big ideas and coffee to get them done.”

The idea brewery is a workshop in which we welcome together people of all backgrounds, ages, and experiences to tease out ideas, mix, match and work together. All are welcome and there’s no such thing as a stupid idea. The goal here is to innovate together in a fun environment with some drinks. Throughout the “fermentation process”, we will form naturally occurring connections with other participants as our ideas mingle and match. This is the power of true collaboration. At the end of the process, one can expect to walk away with a clear idea on paper, some goals to get started and a partner or even a team to take the idea to the next stage (and hopefully fruition).

Everyone is welcome to pull up a chair and listen, but there is limited space available for participating in the workshop. Please enroll here if you want to be sure of a spot.

17:30 – 19:30 pm Drinks, bites and talks

17:45 – 18:15 pm Luc Geurts & Elise Talgorn (Philips) – Back from the Future

How will people who need healthcare interact with technology in the future? How will their lifestyle, needs and struggles evolve and influence the way they feel and approach the world?
Luc Geurts and Elise Talgorn both explore future healthcare scenarios for Philips. On Thursday 30 May they’ll explain how people in the future will interact with emerging technologies such as Augmented & Virtual Reality, Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Assistants. Their goal: to find the innovation disruptors that will change the rules of the game. How? “We project ourselves in the health future and unlock our creativity through explorative prototyping and future storytelling. Then we bring back the future concepts to tomorrow’s reality in scenarios that resonate with users and businesses.” Curious? Get the whole picture from their talk.
