Techcafé on working together as in the once famous NatLab

Philips Research, the once famous NatLab, was a breeding ground for unexpected ideas and solutions. Innovation was stimulated there as people from different disciplines could spontaneously meet and catch up.


This led to many groundbreaking discoveries. The Brainport Eindhoven region is still benefitting from Philips’s legacy. Or is this way of working starting to wear out? Do the key players still know how to do it? How can the mechanisms to stimulate technological innovations continue to function? Early December 2023, these questions were addressed during a Techcafé at Mikrocentrum. This Mikroniek article reports on the discussion. (Photo courtesy of Mikrocentrum)
