Summit day 2

9 November 2016

On the second day we will all gather at 040 Congress & Events Van der Valk Hotel Eindhoven to be welcomed by the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs. After that, there are various inspiring dialogues on cluster-related topics by world-class speakers, moderated by Christian Ketels (TCI). In between there are extensive energising networking breaks to empower your mind. After wrapping up the high-quality stories, the Klokgebouw on Strijp-S in Eindhoven (city centre) provides the special historical and future backdrop for the Conference Dinner: “Foodtech Experience” where you will embark on a highly exciting and tasty journey through food- innovations.

During the day you will become inspired by world-class speakers in a stimulating setting of stories, briefings and dialogues. We nurture the cluster discussion with stories from new perspectives, disciplines and other ways of thinking as these provide a useful contribution to the current discussions in the network. We have arranged for dialogues on: start-ups and scale-ups, various international perspective on clusters, a scientific view and and future business along with the cluster contribution to this. Christian Ketels (TCI) is the moderator of the day and will ensure all stories are relevant and contribute to current cluster thinking, thereby raising challenges and food for thought to work on the next day.
