Innovation Expo (IE2018) is a full sensory experience of the most spectacular innovations. It’s all about fresh encounters and closing concrete deals and agreements. A day in which all participants from the Netherlands and abroad are jointly dedicated to accelerating innovations.

On 4 October 2018 this Dutch innovation eco-system will be showing off its best sides. Government will be offering a stage for high-profile innovations around the circular economy, energy, water, mobility, built-up environment, health, food, and key technologies. Interaction between innovators and government is intrinsic to the Dutch success formula. All interests are carefully weighed-up.  Lines are kept short.  We learn from innovators in other sectors and countries. This enables us to find solutions that are integral, suitable and workable.
