Every Summer Night is devoted to one of this year's innovation themes. Each of the Summer Nights will bring an ecosystem of innovators in different fields together to encourage them to exchange experience and ideas.

During the Summer Nights on the and 4th and 6th of September, the Top 25 innovators in each of the eight themes assemble to celebrate innovation, be inspired, network and drive collaboration. This is the second step of the contestants' AIA18 journey: at the end, the jury will announce the Top 10 participants per theme and they will be invited to pitch their idea at the semi-finals.

The Summer Nights are spread around different parts of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The locations have been carefully chosen to fit each one of the eight themes - Health, Education, Mobility, Security, Finance, Living and Working, Climate and Nutrition.
