Conference / Symposium / Seminar

The concept is simple. KINTalks is an event where inspiring practitioners are invited to talk about their work experience in the field of innovation, digital technology, business and/or design. Key here is sharing knowledge and firing up debate. It seems that there are (too) little moments where academics and practitioners meet. KINTalks helps: 1) to encourage a conversation around shared interests; 2) to learn from each other and 3) to network and nurture lasting relationships. Overall, it is an opportunity to get inspired and energized.

Jet fighter pilot Patrick Vreeburg is working as “Chief Air C2 Cell” at the Operation Center of the Air Force Command. He focuses on the planning and steering of big air force operations, combining people and technology. On November 9, Patrick will come over to talk about the struggles and opportunities of managing the closed-off defence organization and the need for open innovation to remain on top of current technological developments.
