Energy Skills&Tech – Accelerating the energy transition with skills

Tech afbeelding

Did you know that only 25% of the innovations that succeed in the Netherlands are determined by R&D investments and 75% by social innovation? Research* shows us that technological innovation may be good for the creation of knowledge, but its rapid and good deployment and use requires social innovation and skills.

*This session was originally planned for 15 July but due to rising number of positive COVID-19 tests, the session will be postponed to 14 October* 

Instead of informing you with another presentation about what it means and how it works, we give you the opportunity to really learn by doing. In a serious game by Perspectivity you will work together with a team on sustainability and climate goals and experience the need for soft skills. You will be confronted with the crucial trade-off between long-term sustainability and short-term economic growth; how are we going to deal with this complex situation?

We need a minimum of 12 people to play the game and a maximum of 30 people to play at its best.
The event will be organized live at Buccaneer Delft.
