AES annual congress: TEKNOWLOGY

NWO Domain Applied and Engineering Sciences's first annual congress, TEKNOWLOGY, will take place on 9 November, 2017 at the Rijtuigenloods in Amersfoort.

TEKNOWLOGY is the Dutch festival where technology, science, innovation and valorisation meet. On November 9th, NWO Domain Applied and Engineering Sciences (AES) shows the visitor the technical innovations of the future and how Dutch science is prepared for it. The programme offers many (international) speakers, lectures and workshops, as well as an innovation parade with inspiring examples from the applied research of AES.

In the competition “Open Mind” the best original research ideas with societal impact are rewarded. Special attention is paid to Andrew Webb, who will receive the Simon Stevin Meester Prize worth 500,000 euros.
