KOers introduces something new to brighten your world. 

Kunnen wij het maken?’, a podcast about the world of building engineering in which our hosts, Tom Diks and Pieter van Loon, discuss hot topics with guests who work in the field of research and commerce. In episodes of approximately one hour, the boys deepen out the world of several topics in the built environment. We start by talking about Industry 4.0 with Theo Salet and get cracked on timber together with Wim de Groot.
With much more to talk about in the coming year, every two weeks from the 17th of December 2020 on, an episode will be posted on Spotify, iTunes, and Soundcloud.
