The walls are plastered with Post-Its and Posters. There are wild drawings, concept designs, business models scattered all over them in all sorts of colours and sizes. The tables are packed with pens, computers, books and, most notably, a notorious tower of empty ...
Innovation does not happen out of nowhere. It is created in a process that demands structure and absolute freedom to possibility. Not letting limits affect your mind is crucial while shaping the future.

Can you live with 2 euro a day on food for one month… as a student?
My name is Petar Ivanov. I am studying International Marketing at Fontys and this summer I conducted a food experiment. I wanted to find out if it’s possible to live with 2 euro a day ...

A colleague and I prepared a small hands-on workshop for other colleagues on paperless working. Whereas it is more than paperless, it is simply "going digital". We have been discussing paperless working, we have been discussing Zero-Email policies, we have had discussions about much more, And...nothing changed. At least soo ...

Last November I did a small research in context of my module “Applied Research”. This research was about evaluating the changes we made to the carpooling user interface.
We did these changes to the user interface to improve the usability of the application. After the Beta test in September we found ...
First of all Happy New Year ! I hope you all got some relaxing time off. I enjoyed the time to read and stumbled across an article by Laura Hall in The Washington Post from last month, where I took the quote from I used as title. It is a ...
Fontys Carpooling handled the login mechanism on its own until now. We're always trying to keep our eyes on security aspects of our users. Therefor we introduced SURFconext for authentication now instead of asking you for your credentials ourself. It's just like the way you log into your student account and mail postbox. Great, isn't it?
Like I already introduced, Carpooling handled authentication, which means login and the right to visit the 'inner parts of Carpooling', itself. Therefor you had to submit your Fontys credentials to the login form. That worked and was not completely unsecure, of course. It just didn't go along with Fontys' cybersecurity ...
WE ARE THERE :-) After joining the OEB conference the last two years as participant, this year I got the chance to speak on how we came to the idea of stimulating change in education in samll steps. I ll be showcasing some examples of projects which we ran this ...
The carpooling application maintained by students and docents of the InnoLab found big interest by hundreds of students at Fontys Venlo that travel by train, bus and car daily. The first quarter of the study year 2015/2016 brought us a lot insights on how to improve Fontys Carpooling even more for you.
First, a brief introduction what I am talking about here - what is this 'Carpooling'?
Fontys Carpooling is a web-application that is available for free to students and docents at the Fontys campus in Venlo. It helps to find carpools to come to Venlo, from Venlo to your home ...
I was a little bit astonished when I read about the Food Filmfestival on Tour. For 5 years now, this team of ambitious people from Amsterdam is busy with presenting food films and organizing discussions and I´ve never heard about it. That´s interesting as I´m searching the internet for quite ...
Education is hope for the refugees, what can we do locally? Let us know what we should consider and let's act!
