Life in Innovation Space: Techno-Design

Bas Verkaik and Tom Selten are still known as members of the student teams STORM and Solar Team Eindhoven. At the moment they are the pioneers of the new Innovation Space, the place at the university where students, employees, and people from the outside are building the solutions to tomorrow’s problems. In a weekly blog post, they keep E52 informed of their progress.   Tom Selten Foto Bart van Overbeeke Last week Eindhoven was full of spotlights again during Dutch Design Week. The well-attended Mind The Step exhibition of our three popular high-tech universities (excluding the Wannabe nerds from Wageningen) was a resounding success. Again a record number of visitors and an abundance of ambitious students who exhibited their projects. Nothing but praise for the Industrial Designers, who once again took care of the vast majority of the projects. And chapeau, because there were true gems among them. Nevertheless, a slightly critical footnote. Presenting your project to more than 70,000 interested people is not something that only students of Industrial Design should aspire to. Each faculty should embrace this possibility to show which solutions they are working on. Dutch Design Week is the perfect opportunity to show what we are capable of and what we are doing as TU Eindhoven. So let’s not let ourselves be deterred by the word ‘design’? Okay, deal.   Bas Verkaik Foto Bart van Overbeeke Last...

TU/e’s new Innovation Space: “Come and Join Us”

Monday, September 4, the new academic year was officially opened, also at the Eindhoven University of Technology. On top of speeches by rector Frank Baaijens and guest lecturer Alexander Pechtold, Tessie Hartjes could address the audience with her story about the importance of the brand new Innovation Space. This is what she said: Dear fellow members of the TU/e community, Today is not only the start of a new academic year but we also celebrate the start of the TU/e Innovation Space. Personally, I feel very excited about this because it is a missing piece of the puzzle. But, before telling you more about The Innovation Space I would like to share with you one very defining moment from my life. The moment occurred during my high school period. At a certain point during that period everyone needs to choose between two main educational directions. The one most of us here have chosen is that of the bèta sciences and so did I. After that and without my knowledge, my mentor at the time then phoned my parent’s home and my mom answered. He told her I had chosen the bèta direction but he thought that was a bad choice as my grades indicated a better match with the other direction. So when I got home she told about the phonecall but she did not reveal any consequences, so being...
