Bliksem en Donderdag is a new stage where designs, concepts and ideas can be shared, tested and accelerated. The evenings will bring a number of short presentations by makers, thinkers, doers and dreamers. There will be no (passive) audience. Everyone in the room will be motivated to respond and contribute. By explaining their own ideas and finding a match participants will encourage each other to continue or challenge each other to improve.

Bliksem en Donderdag is inspired by the “boterhammensessies” (‘sandwich’ sessions) that took place in the 60s at the Philips Natlab at Strijp-S. During these sessions employees of the lab shared research and ideas. To discover, invent and innovate is in the DNA of Eindhoven. Countless designers, artists, IT specialists, students, and many labs, organizations and initiatives are constantly working on new products, concepts and ideas.

It is our believe that an important key to acceleration lies in sharing your idea in an early stage, so you can test it and look out for partners.

This evening is organised and supported by VPRO Medialab, Baltan Laboratories, TU/e, High Tech Campus and many many others. They will all bring in their ideas and networks to take your idea to the next level. For now, they plan four editions of Bliksem en Donderdag. If successful, the platform continues. For registration, click here.
