Join us: Risk it

Waag explores opportunities for social innovation. We focus on finding ways to use new technology for a better life. And we prefer to do this together with you. Therefore, in September we swap our workstations in the Waag and Pakhuis de Zwijger for the organic market at the Nieuwmarkt. Visit us, think along, express your voice and participate!

Risk it
On September 1 we bring innovation to the Nieuwmarkt. No potatoes or fresh cheeses in our booth, but a lower leg prosthesis that cost less than $50 and can be locally produced by small businesses. Learn about our project 'Low Cost Prosthesis’, experience what it is to have only one leg and discover how you can participate. Do you dare?

Open it
On September 29 we look at the things you cannot live without with different eyes. Do you have any idea what, for example, your mobile phone looks like on the inside? Where oranges are peeled and fresh juices squeezed, you will find a totally different assortment of products that need to loose their skin in our booth. Because we believe:

'If you can’t open it, you do not own it!

Join Waag on the Nieuwmarkt!
