Conference Connecting the Dots
Acceleration, breakthroughs and co-creation in food, mobility and buildings

Innovations like autonomous vehicles, personalized nutrition and smart buildings, each disruptive in its own domain, will inevitably interact. The question is: will we be able to adapt?

We challenge you to broaden your horizons at the Connecting the Dots conference.
The conference offers you access to eminent thinkers and innovators. You will have an opportunity to explore and taste the latest technologies in food, mobility and buildings. You can debate on their impact on our living and working environment and on the changing roles of public and private parties in our society.

Why save this date?
We invite you to be inspired by the incisive views of internationally acclaimed experts on the wide-ranging impact of technological advances on our everyday life, on our cities and on our economies. The conference also offers you a chance to experience diversity; not only in the subjects and technologies discussed, but above all through dialogue with other participants. Please feel free to forward this message.

Why should you be there?
If you want to help shape tomorrow’s world, this conference is an un-missable opportunity to join in the debate with government representatives, civil society, scientists, entrepreneurs, students, and young professionals, plus representatives of European advisory boards and many other forward-thinkers. English will be the conference working language, and admission is free.

The conference will offer a balanced mix of interactive participation and keynote addresses by internationally recognized experts including Carlota Perez (London School of Economics), Kent Larson (Michigan Institute of Technology), André Kuipers (European Space Agency), Jaap Seidell (University of Amsterdam), and Bryant Walker Smith (Stanford Law School, TBC).
  • Prof. Perez: “Understanding technological revolutions is key to understanding major global challenges.”
  • Prof. Larson: “We need to develop space that can be scaled to the demands of people living in cities.”
  • Dr Kuipers: “We have great technology to help us preserve our planet.”
