WHAT’S GOING ON?
Impakt will host Ideas Waiting to Happen: art + science = lectures + dinners + brainstorms.

Ideas Waiting to Happen brings together creative and technical professionals to find new applications for new technologies. Participation and dinner is free. The best idea is rewarded with cash, exposure and tech support.

What could be the place of 3D printing, nano, LED and flexible electronics in our everyday life? Scientists present the latest possibilities, designers show inspiring projects, philosophers explore scenarios we’d like to realize or rather avoid. After all that input, we’ll all have a nice dinner and then get to work! In our brainstorm we’ll think up new ideas for these new possibilities.

Those who are truly dedicated to their idea can pitch it on the final day and hopefully win cash (max € 5.000), technical support (worth € 2.500) and participate at  GOGBOT and the Night Of Art And Science.

Each of the four days has its own theme:

Nano (May 2nd, 15:00 – 21:30)
LED and flexible electronics (May 9th , 15:00 – 21:30 ),
3D manufacturing (May 16th , 15:00 – 21:30 ),
Pitches and prizes (May 23rd, time and place t.b.a.).
