Disrupt Your Mind workshops 

  • Cybersecurity in the OT area & supply chain security, which necessary stept do we need to take?
    Dimitri Hehanussa – Senior Business Manager Cybersecurity at TNO

Cyber resilience in the OT area is critical. Inspired by requirements from operational ICS environments, and aimed at enhancing that cyber resilience, realistic attack scenarios are being run in a controlled manner, thus collecting data. These datasets are essential input for the development and validation of new security monitoring and detection solutions, applicable in practice and capable of countering advanced cyber-attacks.

In this session, Dimitri Hehanussa will discuss with you what you need to increase cyber resilience in the OT area and the supply chain of your company.

  • Business Model Innovation in an Exponential World
    Walter Baets – Learning Officer at Eindhoven Engine

An introduction of how to create impactful, scalable and economically viable solutions based on the potential of exponential techonlogies.

  • Heat delivered in a box!
    Evert Rietdijk – CEO at Cellcius

By using an innovative technology, Cellcius can transport heat loss-free over longer distances. Will there be a Cellcius minibus driving through your neighbourhood in the future, alongside the bol.com minibus, to supply your home with heat? This question will be the starting point of this workshop.

  • Biomimicry – Lessons from nature for technical and social innovation
    Yvonne van Lith – Lecturer in Applied Natural Sciences and Researcher Circular Economy and Energy Transition at Fontys University of Applied Sciences

By designing our products, processes and systems and even our social networks, we can ask ourselves: How does nature do that? How does nature….. attach, cool down, create color, create flow, decompose, communicate, distribute resources, form enduring partnerships? Nature has 3,8 billion years of design experience. We can learn from nature as a model, investigate shapes and structures in nature that are often energy and material efficient. Or we can take nature as a measure to design in a life friendly way. Most of all, nature is a powerful mentor with six very practical Life’s Principles, a set of design strategies that have proven itself to work, to create conditions conducive to life.

In this workshop you will experience these Life’s Principles and apply them to your own organization or project.

  • Experiencing the BuurautoNoom
    Project team SmartMobility at Eindhoven Engine

Take a seat in the future of car sharing. In this workshop you will be introduced to the concept of BuurautoNoom, a disruptive concept in the carsharing industry. Within this project TU/e developed the function of automated valet parking, and you’ll get the opportunity to take a seat and be driven in this automated vehicle!

  • Emergence Lab: Bridging the social gap
    Lotte Geertsen – Project leader Emergence lab at Eindhoven Engine

Help solving wicked problems to bridge the social gap. How? By conducting social innovation wíth the target group.

During this workshop you will experience, using low literacy as use case, how you can practice the most inclusive from of innovation.

  • Moral Design Strategy
    Bart Wernaart – Professor Moral Design Strategy at Fontys University of Applied Sciences

We explore how individual morality can be used as input for design. By making our digital society more human, moral design contributes to reducing the distance between individual and organization. In this workshop we will work out a concrete example.


  • Extra Workshop: How to get funding for your innovative ideas
    15:00 – 15:45 I Room 1.35 I Catalyze & Kadans Science Partner
