24 & 25 October
DRIVE is the annual Design Research & Innovation Festival for designers, researchers, and their colleagues working in business and industry, government and the Top Sectors.
As always, DRIVE will serve you state-of-the-art research, developments and designs that will give you a glimpse of the possible future. Get updated on theme's such as health, VR in heritage, living materials and much more. With a programme consisting of over 36(!) interactive sessions to pick from, DRIVE is the perfect place for creative professionals and researchers who are looking for inspiration and connection.
The Innovative & Inclusive Society
This year societal challenges, as defined in our Knowledge & Innovation Agenda, are at the heart of DRIVE. What happens within research in the creative industry, when we look at the inclusive society, the circular economy and health and wellbeing, for example?
On Wednesday, it's all about Healthy Behaviour, Resilience in Society, Human Empowerment and Personal Experience. Get ready for some wonderful talks on eHealth or designing with future technologies, or for workshops concerning paradoxical thinking. On Thursday, all eyes will be on the Circular Society and Energy & Behaviour. Think about circular design for buildings and the history and future of sustainable design, user involvement in sustainable renovation and showcases of smart energy solutions.
