28 May 2021

Next week (May 31 to June 5) is the Dutch Technolgy Week (DTW), this year again in a different guise than we know: the program will take place online. The 10th edition of the DTW will start digitally on Monday with "Students on Stage". Students from the Summa College, Fontys Hogescholen and the TU/e ​​provide this kick-off from the High Tech Campus. The full program can be found online, see the button. Be inspired and amazed next week!

One of the special elements that we want to bring to the attention is the Live talk show on Wednesday June 2 "Vitality in the workplace", in which visions of the future of our work and the role of technology in it are discussed. takes place and you see live demos of innovative solutions using smart technologies, which are already available.

 

Fontys, imec, TNO, TU/e ​​(FITT) and Eindhoven Engine work together - within a strong regional ecosystem - in the FITT and PowerFITTing programs, to combine their extensive knowledge and experience into concrete, innovative and effective solutions for a vital working environment. . This will take place after the summer in the new Workplace Vitality Hub on the High Tech Campus (HTC 85). New technologies to really put the working person and their needs at the center are researched and developed in this. Our lives have changed more rapidly in recent decades than ever before. New technologies have played a major role in this and often have a negative impact on our vitality: we are becoming more and more physically inactive and are more often subject to stress. Digital technologies such as big data and artificial intelligence can increase these negative effects. However, these technologies also have great potential to support a vital lifestyle in a personalized way.
