There's a lot happening at Eindhoven Engine!

Eindhoven Engine News April 2022

The results of the OpenCall 2022 were recently published and we are very pleased with the outcome! We are very much looking forward to welcoming the 7 new innovation projects to Eindhoven Engine and our community and start to make impact and cross-over innovations with all 26 projects!

The e-learning course Business Model Innovation in an Exponential World is now available as a 4-day course for professionals, in the beginning of June 2022. We offer this new course in collaboration with The High Tech Institute.

In the meantime, we are preparing for the Hack2Impact Hackathon that will take place from 20 to 22 May! Building community means making connections. That is what the SmartMan project initiated in the cross-over connection with our Carbyon project: a student started his traineeship at Carbyon. Further in this newsletter we would like to introduce you new members of our community:

  • Lotte Geertsen, Project leader of the Eindhoven Engine Emergence lab

  • Mylene Frankfort, Project leader at Medicaid

Enjoy your read!

Crossover of two Eindhoven Engine projects

Meaningful crossovers can found at all levels and at the most unexpected moments. An awesome example is from the project SmartMan. One of the project’s students will carry out his graduation internship at one of our other Eindhoven Engine projects, Carbyon.
