Dutch Innovation Days

DID Ellis

The first edition of the Dutch Innovation Days will take place from 26 to 30 May. The five-day innovation festival in Enschede is bursting with innovation, inspiration, eye candy and interactive exhibitions.

This one question is central during the Dutch Innovation Days, or "DID"; How DID they do that? How do innovations really come about? Why do some brilliant ideas fail? Why is it that so many iconic Dutch pioneers lived and / or studied in Enschede? And how do the innovations conceived at the drawing board eventually reach your home?

The city as a playground
DID21 takes place at several locations in Enschede, with the epicenter WARP Technopolis and the Stationsplein. The expos, challenges, experiences and workspaces take place at, among others, Kennispark, Technology Base, Tetem, Rijksmuseum Twenthe, ROC van Twente, Roombeek, Concordia and various companies.
