Earth 2.0: is the world getting better or worse?
We live in an imperfect world. Poverty, disease, lack of education, environmental destruction: the problems are all too obvious. Can we do anything about it? Emerging global technologies have a serious impact on society as it is today. The organization of the PhD & PDEng Day, P-NUT, want to position two sides of the coin by imposing a battle: optimistic (e.g., ‘heading for a golden future!’) versus pessimistic (e.g., ‘the world is going to die!’). Therefore during the PhD & PDEng day, they want to present the participants with the different opportunities for making the world a better place and to equip them towards achieving their desired position.
Starting your own business after your PhD

We offer you an inspiring workshop about the phases from researcher to a successful startup. We show what support the University of Twente Knowledge & Technology Transfer Office offers to start with your business. In addition, Jasper van Weerd, founder of LipoCoat, will share his story, experiences and tips about starting a business from research.
