From October 23 to 27, we are back in the Effenaar (Eindhoven) for inspiring talks (DRIVE Live) and cool work sessions (DRIVE Works) during Dutch Design Week. We bring you inspiring examples of knowledge and innovation in and for the creative industry.

Like other years, every DRIVE day focuses on a major social theme. Talks and work sessions are centered around these themes. The last DRIVE day (October 27) will be a little different this year: we will celebrate DRIVE's 10th anniversary with a big party, and you are invited!

DRIVE is organized by CLICKNL and 4TU.Design United, and is an English-language festival.


  • DRIVE Live (digital) 10.30 - 11.30 / talk show with top notch projects on stage
  • DRIVE Works (invitation only) 11.45 - 14.00 / depth in small working groups (Discover all work sessions. Interested in joining in the Effenaar, Eindhoven? Sign up for the waiting list!)


These are all the confirmed speakers of DRIVE 2023. Click on a photo to learn more about each one.

Moderator: Marieke Eyskoot
