10.00 – 10.30 | Maarten Steinbuch

Will Cars Become Robots?
As the Netherlands we play in the world top with our football and healthcare robots. We are number 1 worldwide in high tech machines, and a living lab for smart, autonomous and electric cars. We have the most accurate surgical robots in the world, and can do operations remotely that no one else can. Data is becoming dominant and decisive. What about the development of smart cars? Will we soon be able to drive without a licence?

10.30 – 11.00 | Tessie Hartjes (Lightyear)

Tessie is fascinated by the way technology interacts with us as humans, with our perceptions, our mind & body but also with entire societal systems. She loves to figure out how certain processes have emerged based on, or shaped by, technological developments also relating them to current trends.

In 2017 Tessie joined Lightyear to help realise their mission; provide sustainable transport everywhere and for everyone. Lightyear believes the future of mobility is in the combination of electric vehicles and integrated solar technology.

11.00 – 11.30 | André Kuipers

There is a remarkable multinational in space: the International Space Station (ISS), built by America, Europe, Russia, Canada and Japan. Dutch astronaut André Kuipers had the privilege of working in the ISS twice and being part of this international enterprise.
The ISS is the largest, most complex, international technological structure ever created by man. By working on ground breaking technology that can withstand extraterrestrial conditions, we gain scientific insights into our place in the universe and collect an incredible amount of information about our own Earth and life on it. Technology is everywhere in space: in medical matters, communication, transport, energy, food and even in sports.

14.00 – 14.30 | Entrepreneur & speaker Peter Ros

Technological developments are flying around, one more promising than the other. And yet it seems to go slowly, sometimes a fantastic technology does not even reach the work floor. Why is it that at one moment developments go so fast and at another place they are as slow as thick faeces? Peter Ros takes us into a world where we can use technology in a positive way to improve healthcare. This requires some systemic and human adaptations…

14.30 – 15.00 | Fieke Geurts

Technological innovation is what makes this region strong. Technical innovation will also play a crucial role in the energy transition in the coming decades. There are many good examples in this region: Lightyear, Carbyon, Incooling, Dens, Rift. But… is that the whole story? Besides innovation, what role does the implementation of existing technologies play in the energy transition? And what role is there for social innovation? Fieke Geurts takes you to the future of a successful energy transition and shows how MBO, HBO and WO students will play a crucial role in this.
