On December 19 we celebrate our 15th anniversary!

Where initially the focus was on Media & ICT, today we study the intertwined relationships between technology, people and society. We do this by looking at 'shifting interfaces' (from analogue to digital) and by studying their interactions, impact and insights.

For the occasion we have put together an evening program with scientific insights on how people interact today with technology and how we contribute to future technologies for the people of tomorrow. Afterwards we are organizing a guided demo tour and we foresee food, drinks and a party!
