Sometimes watching a football match can give you a deja vu feeling. That’s what happened to me during the European Champanionship. Just like the Dutch lost from Denmark and Germany during the European Championship, we are losing in the clean

Het rapport “De Staat van Nederland innovatieland 2012” dat TNO op 8 juni presenteerde, waarschuwt Nederland: we dreigen achterop te raken als we niet snel gaan innoveren. We zijn een middenmoter en een ‘innovatievolger’, aldus Jan Mengelers (Bestuursvoorzitter TNO). Volgens

You may wonder by now what it’s all about. Sure, innovation – you got that much. And something about topics, sectors or themes, depending on how long you’ve been following this site. The speakers are brilliant and have a great
The word ‘innovation’ has a nice ring to it. It stands for something new, for something fresh and friendly. It is a sort of double compliment to call someone an ‘innovative entrepreneur’. The kind of compliment you give to nice,
PART 1: ACT WITH EXTRAVERSION (OR FAKE IT) How innovation comes about, can seem hard to grasp. It seems to involve some coincidence, and not-so-tangible networks. It does not require more research: it is often shown that innovation is not
“I have never failed” Thomas Edison The headlines from the Dutch Newspaper NRC Handelsblad on Thursday, April 26th 2012 read: Global player landing in Rotterdam We would have chosen a different headline, because the global player meant is General Electric,

It’s the 14th of May. The day of the try-outs for TEDxBinnenhof. Outside the building of Space Expo people are practicing their talk. In the reception area candidates get a short briefing. You can feel the tension in the air.
The environmental policy debate has been taken over by climate change for years. With some backlash lately because of climate denialism. Most discussion about climate change focus on reducing the emissions of carbon dioxide into the air. In this post

Lights go out. The room is silent. You enter the stage and start your presentation. A few minutes pass and you have no idea if the audience likes what you’re doing. Whether you connect with them. A common situation for
