DORP is the innovation platform of Welcome to The Village. It is the place where entrepreneurs, scientists, students and others come together and draw, build and test their challenges – all in ten days. Together we create solutions for our future and realise our goal; a fully circular festival in 2022. Read eight of this year’s stories below, or listen to DORP Radio to stay updated.
DORP is a co-production of Climate-KIC, Innofest, EIT RawMaterials, Leiden-Delft-Erasmus Centre for Sustainability, University of Groningen, Frisian Design Factory, Inqubater Leeuwarden and Welcome to The Village and starts one week before the festival starts.
