Doe & Durf (Do & Dare) is a competition where teams of engineers from a variety of backgrounds and companies are prompted to use their creativity, their skills, and their expertise to develop an innovative solution to social challenges.
In 2016, the theme for the competition was: ‘City of the future, innovation for urban development’’. At the time, one of the Netherlands’ leading retailers reached bankruptcy, resulting in many deserted warehouses and shopping centers.
