TEKNOWLOGY - NWO Innovation Festival

TEKNOWLOGY is hét festival waar technologie, wetenschap, innovatie en valorisatie samen komen. Op 8 november 2018 krijgen bezoekers een blik op technische innovaties van de toekomst en hoe de Nederlandse wetenschap zich daarop voorbereidt.


TEKNOWLOGY biedt een programma vol (internationale) sprekers, workshops en inspirerende voorbeelden uit het toegepaste onderzoek van NWO. Naast een strijd om het beste idee voor technologie met verrassende maatschappelijke toepassing in de Open mind-competitie is er speciale aandacht voor het het tienjarig bestaan van Perspectief, een financieringsinstrument van NWO-domein Toegepaste en Technische Wetenschappen.

  • Responsible Innovation: increase the societal success of your innovation!

How do you bring about (technological) innovations that enjoy broad societal support? The NWO research approach Responsible Innovation (MVI), aims to do this by taking societal aspects (e.g. ethical, juridical, economical, psychological) into account in the design process. Learn how insights into societal issues can turn your innovation too into a success!

  • Realizing effective cooperation

Effective cooperation between different partners in a consortium, between different organizations in a cooperative or different parties in a project is a challenge. And because these forms of collaboration are becoming more and more common, it is important to find out how real cooperation can actually be achieved, despite the differences.

The Co-Opera game is a safe, accessible and fun way to experience in a short period of time how to obtain real cooperation between different departments, partners or organizations. Co-Opera addresses real issues that arise during the development of partnerships and consortia. Issues that often remain implicit, under the surface and that therefor can impede true cooperation. By experiencing during the game what these issues are and how you can influence the process of building partnerships, you will learn how to circumvent the most important pitfalls.

  • A serious game for the biotechnology domain

In our T-TRIPP project, we aim to develop tools for the translation of risk research into policies and practices for the biotechnological domain. One of these tools will be a game for awareness, training and learning purposes; a serious game. Join us today to conduct a gamestorm. Are you curious? Then just drop by!

  • Start forming a consortium now: key to a successful scientific career

In this workshop, you will learn about the six main trends in the research (funding) landscape in the Netherlands and the EU. The main trend is that more and more, working in consortia is important for acquiring funding and advancing your scientific career. The network you need to form a consortium is not a network with only scientific partners but should include many other type of partners. In this workshop, we will assist you in defining and expanding your current network. With these insights you will be one step closer to forming a consortium!
