    Every year the Dutch Design Foundation organizes the largest design event of Northern Europe. From 20 - 28 October, Dutch Design Week will present the work and concepts of over 2600 designers and welcome more than 335.000 visitors to Eindhoven. One of the official DDW location is Sectie-C, a creative terrain populated with over 250 creative people. One of them is a member of the NCCC and there she owns a gallery, Art Experience by KRL. For this year’s DDW, she will be presenting the exposition, curated by Justine Kontou, and a dinner experience, initiated by design food studio The Eatelier and chef Pippens, 28 grams of happiness. 

    For this special evening, our host will first give us a tour of Sectie-C. Following the tour, we will be treated to a unique welcome drink designed especially for the NCCC. Then we sit down for a fantastic culinary experience.

    This year, they are experimenting with happiness, and how to cultivate it through food. How does food impact our physical and mental state or even our senses? What does food do to our brain and can we anticipate the effects? Can we define the taste of happiness by optimizing the taste and the sensorial experience? Could we regard food as a bit of a drug, if we take a closer look at the reactions in your brain? Should we look at food the same way we would medicine or drugs, with the intention of improving health? A healthy body is a happier body, is it not? By translating scientific research into the world of food, Katinka and chef Pippens will answer these questions by creating an eye opening, educational, exciting, and sensorial dinner experience.


    The dinner will be accompanied by an exposition that will take us on a complete journey in the pursuit of finding happiness, and it will show us how design can provoke a sense of wonder, luck, content or gratefulness. The exhibition is set in the gallery Art Experience by KRL on Sectie-C and curated by the talented Justine Kontou, who’s skills lie in the cultivation of emotion through space and object. In addition, some Canadian produced pieces will also be featured.

    Dinner Presentation

    The dinner is set to 16 courses and invites (max.) 28 guests to take a seat at a long table. The courses will be served individually or on big platters to help get conversation started and have guests interact with each other. During the meal, Katinka and Pepijn will step out of the kitchen and elaborate on each dish and course. Guests will be handed a printed menu that gives an insight into the underlying research.

    The ticket includes your DDW entrance fee to Sectie-C, guided tour, welcome drink and 16 course dinner with wine pairing. Payment in full is required before reservation can be confirmed. Tickets are exclusive BTW and are non-refundable but are transferable.

    NCCC Members and 1 guest € 90,00 per person
    Additional guests € 99,00 per person

    • Van Nelle Ontwerpfabriek, Rotterdam

    Coney is a Data-driven Financial Auditing, Business Analytics, Continuous Monitoring & Analytical Support Services company. They periodically host round table discussions.

    1 november nodigen we je uit voor Roundtable 3, uit Canada komt het team van Mindbridge. AI naar de Van Nellefabriek in Rotterdam, met de AI audit oplossing in Canada en US op dit moment. We zijn nieuwsgierig, benieuwd en hebben vragen.

    We zien dit als een mooi vervolg op onze eerdere sessies, goed moment om een AI audit oplossing live te zien, met aanwezigheid van senior team van Mindbridge in de Van Nellefabriek. We kunnen na hun demo bespreken waar we nu écht staan met AI, wat vinden we van Mindbridge, wat is er verder gebeurt na onze laatste rondetafel op gebied van AI in de audit.

    Er zijn veel trending topics, denk nu aan Fraudedebat, waar wij denken dat een goede AI oplossing van meerwaarde kan zijn.

    Ook deze keer, we houden het kleinschallig, vol is vol, dus meldt je snel aan.

    Achtergrond Coney Audit & AI Rondetafels 

    We horen van alles over de inzet van Artificial Intelligence (AI) in de praktijk, maar wat is precies de toegevoegde waarde van deze hype voor de auditsector?

    Tijdens de roundtables zullen wij op zoek gaan naar een antwoord op dit vraagstuk. Dit doen we op basis van drie onderwerpen die tijdens de eerste roundtables als meest relevant zijn aangemerkt voor de fase waarin AI / Audit zich nu in bevindt;

    AI-toepassingen komen terug in het dagelijks leven. Grote universiteiten wijden afdelingen aan AI, en technologiebedrijven zoals Apple, Facebook, Google, IBM en Microsoft investeren om AI-applicaties te verkennen. Zelfs Hollywood maakt gebruik van AI-technologie. AI is op dit moment al ingebed in mainstream, strategisch belangrijke systemen. Het gebied verschuift van het simpelweg bouwen van systemen die intelligent zijn naar de opbouw van intelligente systemen die zich bewust zijn van de mens en daarnaast betrouwbaar zijn.

    De roundtables zijn voor professionals die geloven in kennisdeling en verbinding, en ervaring hebben met of interesse hebben in de inzet van AI in de praktijk. Voel jij je geroepen? Meld je dan direct aan! Let op, we werken met een kleine groep, we kunnen vragen waarom je denkt een bijdrage te kunnen leveren voordat we je deelname definitief bevestigen.

Not only will it enhance the networking opportunities for all, but guests may also deduct the cost for the Luncheon -in the amount of €55- from their membership fee for 2019 when they sign up at the event.

    • Tilburg

    De Verenigde Staten en Canada staan in de top van landen waar u met succes kunt ondernemen. Het zakelijke klimaat is goed, ondernemerschap wordt gestimuleerd en het zakendoen wordt relatief gemakkelijk gemaakt. Bent u geïnteresseerd? Kom dan op 26 november naar Road2USA&CanadaXL in Tilburg, het netwerkevenement voor ondernemers die succesvol de Noord-Amerikaanse markt willen betreden of daar willen uitbreiden.

    Op Road2USA&CanadaXL vindt u experts, ervaringsdeskundigen en een relevant netwerk. De ambassadeurs van de VS en Canada openen het evenement. Daarna is er een plenaire discussie met zeer ervaren vertegenwoordigers uit het Nederlandse bedrijfsleven, politiek deskundige Willem Post en de Amerikaanse ambassade.

    Noord-Amerikaanse markt

    U komt meer te weten over de Noord-Amerikaanse markt door workshops over marktkansen, praktische tips van ervaringsdeskundigen, informatie over het vestigen van een bedrijf met de focus op juridische, fiscale en visumaangelegenheden. Er is een specifieke workshop over de CETA, het handelsverdrag met Canada dat nu 1 jaar in werking is. De CETA heeft geleid tot een forse toename in Nederlandse investeringen, handelsmissies, beursbezoeken en handelsaanvragen.

    Natuurlijk is er ook volop gelegenheid om uw zakelijke netwerk uit te breiden en bedrijven te ontmoeten die actief zijn in deze landen. Dit kan tijdens de lunch, op de informatiemarkt - met deskundigen van de Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland (RVO.nl) en de Kamer van Koophandel (KvK) - en tijdens de netwerkborrel.

    • Various Theatres Throughout The Netherlands

    Red Sky Performance is Canada’s leading company in contemporary Indigenous performing art.

    This new production: BACKBONE, has been selected to open the 18th CINARS Biennale in Montreal on November 13th, 2019 at Monument-National. Before that, the company will tour The Netherlands during January and February 2019.

    The performance is a combination of traditional and contemporary dance connecting the past with the present.

    BACKBONE ferociously brings to life the electricity, circuitry, and impulses of a sentient land as it emerges from millions of years of restlessness. With powerful live music and highly physical solos, duets, and ensembles, the performers interpret nature’s spine and landscapes to embody Indigenous mapping and Western cartography. 

    “The idea that there is a 'spine' to our continents is an Indigenous concept as old as living memory; it reveals our way of perceiving and mapping land as alive, sentient, and intact. Through dance and music, I wanted to show that the rocky spine of the Americas has life, circuitry, electricity, and dynamic impulses - much like the human spine. For us, there is a strong connection between the earth's backbone and a human one. We are inseparable,” says Artistic Director Sandra Laronde.
