A few examples of big congresses the city of Enschede has hosted in the past.
In October 2019, the fourth conference on Microfluidic Handling Systems will take place. During this congress, the main focus is on ultramodern nanotechnology with a focus on the components, devices and systems that enable the application in microfluidic handling systems. These systems will play an important role in the future, because they are able to measure very small quantities of gas and liquid very accurately. They can be used in various ways, such as monitoring ground water pollution. The conference will take place at the Kleine Willem, located in the inner city of Enschede.
During this congress, which had the aim of building a bridge between East and West, the Russia & Eastern Europe Academy provided a different point of view than is usually given through mainstream media. Four experts in the field of Russia and the relations between the West and Russia shared their knowledge and expertise, in which both history and the present were extensively discussed. The congress took place at the University of Twente.
At the Grolsch Veste, home stadium to FC Twente, in one day over 500 participants were completely updated on the latest developments in the area of High Tech Systems and Materials (HTSM) and the production industry. Entrepreneurs, researchers, government and knowledge-based institutions were given a clear insight into opportunities and trends next to networking. The Innoversum Innovation Congress is held in a different location in the Netherlands annually.
