Who can sign up?
If you are a student, PhD candidate or researcher at Eindhoven University of Technology, Delft University of Technology, University of Twente or Wageningen University, ‘Mind the Step’ provides a unique opportunity to present your design and research results to a wider audience.
We’re looking for entries with the following characteristics. The entry:
> tells a powerful story;
> contributes to societal solutions;
> demonstrates the application of technology;
> is based on or builds on research;
> can be easily explained;
> in practical terms is sufficiently robust;
> has been designed and built with care.
What do we expect from the exhibitors during the DDW?
Mind the Step offers exposure to a large number of projects, grouped thematically. The exhibits and how they are presented will be determined in consultation with the exhibitor. Visitors of the exhibition experience a huge added value if a project is explained and explored in greater depth. That is one of the reasons why it is important for the exhibitors themselves to be present throughout the exhibition.
The selection committee is chaired by the project leader and consists of researchers/designers from Delft University of Technology, Eindhoven University of Technology, University of Twente and Wageningen University.
The committee consists of the following members:
• Dr. Lucas Asselbergs Chairman Selection Committee
• Dr.ir. Maaike Kleinsmann Delft University of Technology Industrial Design Engineering
• Ir. Tom Veeger Eindhoven University of Technology, Built Environment
• Dr.ir. Stephan Wensveen Eindhoven University of Technology, Industrial Design
• Prof. dr.ir. Mascha van der Voort University of Twente
