CREATE TOMORROW

Could you use some variation and inspiration with your friends? Create Tomorrow, the world’s largest international student think tank, based in Enschede, gives you that chance! 

Create Tomorrow is an international event, full of inspiration, technology and entertainment! 27 May is full of inspiration. 28 May is all about the greatest student think tank, which you will experience via a live stream on our Create Tomorrow platform. Of course, you and your team can physically work together.

You and a thousand fellow students will explore and solve societal, business-related or technical cases. You will, in a corona proof way according to your local situation, work on the multidisciplinary challenges of the future. These challenges are all related to our four themes: Connected Healthcare, Energy Transition, Future Industry and Smart Cities. You can join as a team, or join as individual to form an international team.

THE PROGRAM

PREPARATION EVENT
To prepare you as best as possible, we put together a preparatory program on 27 May. Interesting keynotes, inspiring workshops and panel discussions will help you and your teammates to gain more understanding in one of the four themes, which are also connected to the challenges in the think tank. 

THINK TANK
28 May is all about the greatest student think tank, which you will experience via a live stream on our Create Tomorrow platform. Of course, you and your team can physically work together, depending on your local situation.

EVEN MORE INSPIRATION
Create Tomorrow is part of the Dutch Innovation Days. DID takes visitors into the world of innovation, breakthrough technology and the creation of new solutions.

THE CHALLENGES
Together with a lot of impact creators we will explore new solutions for challenges on different themes: connected healthcare, energy transition, future industries and smart cities. We believe that we can achieve more impact in these challenges by working together and creating new connections. During the event, challenges will be pitched in four themes. And of course, the challenge providers will be there the whole day to support your creative process.

CONNECTED HEALTHCARE
We are approaching the limits of keeping our healthcare system accessible and affordable. Covid-19 has more than demonstrated that vulnerability. As we age and our changing lifestyle leads to more demand for care, for example due to diseases such as diabetes and arthrosis. Technology is the solution. But legislation and regulations mean that everything must be extensively researched and tested. Who takes which responsibility in this? How can we introduce technological innovations faster and get them adopted by the end users through new forms of collaboration?

ENERGY TRANSITION
An Energy-neutral world in one generation. The use of fossil fuels and deforestation causes high CO2 emissions, or CO2 emissions, worldwide. In order to achieve the global climate goals, we must not only reduce these emissions to zero, but also remove greenhouse gases from the air. We call the removal of CO2 from the air negative emission technology. These are techniques in which net CO2 is removed from the atmosphere. This goes a step further than just preventing or reducing CO2 emissions. How can we reduce our CO2 footprint?

FUTURE INDUSTRY
A future as a manufacturing company. Our factories will look very different in the future. We are increasingly making way for robots and machines that replace hands. Will there still be room for craftsmanship in the future? What are new professions? What does an employer look like? What role does data play? What are other bottlenecks in this transition?

SMART CITIES
Due to the changing times and the rise of online shopping, a lot is changing for the physical stores. But the pandemic we are now dealing with is also changing the way of shopping. How can you as a store maintain its right to exist in the future? In what form will this be and which concept is appropriate for this?
