Feel like an inspiring conversation? An opportunity for new collaborations? Or just a stimulating encounter with a good glass of wine? Join us at the Eindhoven Innovation Café. The spot where people from the arts, design, research and technology interact. We are aiming for a weekly program full of inspiring pitches, expert talks, discussions as well as workshops, lasting up to half an hour parallel to the drinks. English spoken. Of course.




Santa Claus is more than a gift-bringer; he’s light-years ahead of us in terms of technology and could inspire our future innovations and creations. Research Scientist Barry Fitzgerald (BW Science / TU Delft) will disclose the secret science behind Santa Claus’ journey and what the future might hold for him. He still sets out on Christmas Eve, on an extraordinary journey to deliver presents to millions of children. Thanks to his scientific collaboration with the elf-scientists, Santa Claus has developed an array of gadgets to achieve his goal.


The 13 December episode of EHV Innovation Café is the last of 2018. We will enjoy a holidays recess and be back in full swing on Thursday 3 January!
