Teknowlogy the NWO Innovation Festival

TEKNOWLOGY is the Dutch festival where technology, science, innovation and valorisation meet. The NWO Domain Applied and Engineering Sciences (AES) shows the visitor the technical innovations of the future and how Dutch science is prepared for it.


TEKNOWLOGY offers a programme with many (international) speakers, lectures and workshops, and inspiring examples from the applied research of NWO Domain Applied and Engineering Sciences. Next to the competition for the best original research ideas with societal impact, special attention was paid to Andrew Webb, who received the Simon Stevin Meester Prize worth 500,000 euros.

The top 3 nominees were (in alphabetical order): Nynke van den Berg of Leiden University Medical Center, Floris van den Brink of University of Twente and Bart Macco of Eindhoven University of Technology.
