Business Model:
• Customer should not own
battery > battery exchange
• Re-charging infrastructure
But:
• Why is not taking
off?
• Who owns the
meter and the data?

Governing Innovations
Can you “govern” innovations?
Elective cluster (12 ects)
 Innovations: spontaneous process with high risks and very
uncertain returns > Are WBSO subsidies the magic toolbox for
 Life in a Virtual World: the social science of the Internet
innovations in the Netherlands?
 Knowledge Economy & Society
 Naive perception of policy: government will/has to take care of
everything > BUT: government is increasingly pulling out!
 Innovation & Sustainability
 Technology, Globalization & Europeanization
 Problem for society: how to produce radical innovations? Are
innovation subsidies just for big companies? How to foster innovations
in small- and medium sized companies? Are large firms like Apple and
Big Pharma just exploiting public funds without sharing the benefits

Alain Starke, 24 years young
More about me
• SG Augustinianum Eindhoven (VWO; 2002-2008)
• Alain…
• Natural Sciences & Technology
•
•
•
•
•
• BSc Technogical Innovation Sciences (2008-2012)
• Minored in Energy Technology
• Thesis: Cultural Legitimacy of Dutch Bicycle Use
Likes to conduct research
Has organizational ambitions
Bears a weak spot for sustainability
Thinks ICT is sexy but sucks at programming
Secretly graduates on an HTI topic
• Had my fair share of extracurricular activities, like:
• Honors Horizon Program
• Full-time board Intermate 2010/2011
• What I’m doing right now (Get rich or die talkin’)
• Was also denied a modelling career
PAGE 35
PAGE 36

I also faced a difficult choice…
My decision-making process
ALL ABOUT ME & INNOVATION
SCIENCES
PAGE 37
I even wrote an article about it
PAGE 38
Considering my options
• Focusing my courses or maintaining a broad scope?
• Technology as a starting point or as a mere subject?
• Practical experience or a scientific career?
• And considerations like…
• “Ja hé, alles is wel leuk!”
• “Ik kèn overal mijn ei wel in kwijt, figuurlijk gezien dan.”
PAGE 39
So eventually…
PAGE 40
Why?
• I preferred a research-oriented master
• IS / HTI
• Wish to tackle global issues locally
• IS / Partially HTI
• Multidisciplinary courses
• Foremost in IS
• Still, I prefer experimental designs
• That’s why I’m a bit HTI-oriented

My experiences
 First year Innovation Sciences
• No engineering courses
• Innovation & Sustainability cluster
• Super Crunchers, Life Online, Development Economics
• Very cohesive lectures
• Approachability

All about you: Question Time
 Second year Innovation Sciences
With a question mark to emphasize this
• Invaluable international semester in Lausanne, CH
• Currently working on Master’s thesis
• Support from graduation supervisors
• Topic: Social energy-saving recommender systems
