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

 

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

19:00 – 19:30 pm Rian Smolenaers

Electromagnetic Fields and its impact on our daily lives

The Energy Transition is going full through, but are we aware of EMFs? Are we underestimating its danger? Smart Meters, Solar Panels, LED lights might all be causing pollution, without experts acknowledging this danger; therefore, a holistic approach is needed. Rino Groenenberg has a bachelor’s degree on real state (Built environment) and a master degree from the TU/e on Building Physics and Services, where he got interested in healthy buildings. He is currently expert on Healthy and Sustainable Buildings.

Martine Vries is sensitive to EMFs. This has radically affected her health, life style and professional orientation. She will talk about her personal experience and about her current projects with academic institutions about EMF and health.

We live in a world where everyone and everything is connected. Technology is constantly part of our everyday lives. And it’s still developing. We are bathing in a smog of radiation, 24/7. Are we sure it has no influence on our health? What does all the electromagnetic radiation from wireless communication do to our body and mind? Should we protect ourselves with the right materials and products in an aesthetic way? Rian Smolenaers is a material and space designer. She graduated in Interior and Exterior Design at SintLucas, Boxtel and Man and Communication at Design Academy, Eindhoven.

This edition is made possible by Foundation Art + Tech Society.

EHV INNOVATION CAFÉ

 

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

17:50 – 18:00 pm Introduction of UXify & EHV Innovation Cafe

18:00 – 19:00 pm Workshop by UXify & Valsplat

 

This edition is made possible by UXify. 

UXify is a community that is passionate about User Experience (UX), consisting of designers, startups and developers, from student to expert. In this edition of EHV Innovation Café, they organise a workshop focusing on Voice Interfaces:

“We take you on a journey through our vision on the design process, called design by insight. It’s a way of thinking and working in which research and design seamlessly merge. In an interactive way we give you concrete tools to design solutions that matter to people. During the workshop we zoom in on voice, because voice is hot and that results in a lot of solutions that don’t really solve a problem. How can we turn this around?”

The workshop will be given by Miel de Zwart and Lisa van Mastbergen from Valsplat. Miel has the unique talent to fathom people by just having a casual conversation with them. He is not afraid to bring up complicated issues, but he does it always with a smile. Lisa always knows how to use her fiery enthusiasm to make every project a success. She combines this killer attitude with an extensive knowledge of UX which means she’s not afraid to give her opinion.

Up front registration is preferred, so we know how many people will join us. Please do so here!
It is still possible to walk in and join on the evening itself.
