Design Research & Innovation Festival


Just like last year, the Design Research & Innovation Festival took place in De Effenaar, during the Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven (2022). The festival is organized by CLICKNL and 4TU.Design United.

Save the date: in 2023 we will be back from Oct. 23 to 27!

Since 2014, we have been putting innovative projects -with results- at the interface of knowledge and innovation in the spotlight every year during DRIVE Festival. In 2022, DRIVE focused on a couple of themes where we see great opportunities for the creative sector. Think about Immersive Content, both digitally and non-digitally, circular design and businessmodels, or societal innovation & inclusion for example.

Although DRIVE already took place, it is possible to watch the recordings.
