This summer is the first semi-lustrum i.e. 2.5-year anniversary of Summum Engineering, and will mark this occasion by organizing Peptalks2019, an event that includes a symposium, a reception and a contest. Check out the official website of Peptalks2019 for more information and to register! The symposium has early bird rates until the end of June, and a 50% student discount in general!

The theme of this first edition is:

Digital design and construction.

The event aims to gather professionals and students, who share an interest in the future of the built environment, particularly related to this year’s focus on digital design and construction. At the center are the speakers, who hail from the Netherlands, Switzerland, Spain and Italy, and each have built an impressive portfolio in digitally fabricated and/or computationally designed structures and objects. Apart from offering opportunity to meet people and exchange ideas, the event will serve as a platform for the next generation of recent graduates, who are invited to compete for the Summum Thesis Award.

On Friday, August 30th, 2019, the event will start at Het Nieuwe Instituut (Museumpark 25, 3015 CB Rotterdam) with a Symposium featuring six inspiring, international speakers. More information about their talks can be found in the program. The event will continue at Het Industriegebouw (Goudsesingel 66, 3011 KD Rotterdam) with a Reception to celebrate the semi-lustrum anniversary of Summum Engineering. During the reception a student Contest will take place, where the most innovative and inspiring graduation thesis will receive the Summum Thesis Award (and a prize of €500).
