ESI symposium 2020-2021

While preparing the ESI symposium, the coronavirus and the taken measures internationally have forced us to reconsider the organization of the ESI symposium. The good news is: the symposium will take place, in two parts! On the original date of October 6, there will be an on-line preview in the form of multiple webinars. The actual, physical ESI symposium, will be rescheduled for April 20, 2021, in the familiar format, including keynotes, parallel sessions and the challenging innovation market.



Tuesday October 6, 2020: ESI symposium on-line preview

Tuesday April 20, 2021: ESI symposium in theater De Schalm in Veldhoven


The theme for both events will be "digital enablement". Details, invitation and registration for the ESI symposium on-line preview will follow in a few weeks.


We look forward to seeing you virtually in October and live in April 2021!



Wouter Leibbrandt and Frans Beenker
