Call High tech for a sustainable future

UPDATE 12 December: we added a Q&A to this news item.
The 4TU.Federation (TU Delft, TU/e, UT and WU) has issued a Call for proposals for the 4TU research programmes 2018-2021. The overarching theme of the programmes is ‘High tech for a sustainable future’.  

4TU to boost National Research Agenda

The four Dutch universities of technology (TU Delft, TU Eindhoven, Twente University, Wageningen University & Research), joining forces as the 4TU.Federation, are set to provide a €19-million boost to key areas of science in the Netherlands in the period 2018-2021. Dutch society is on the brink of huge challenges in the field of sustainability. The four universities of technology are committed to finding answers to these issues.

4TU.Annual Report 2016

2016 was a memorable year for the 4TU.Federation. It was the first year in which the federation no longer received any direct financial support from the Dutch Government, and it was the year in which Wageningen University & Research (WUR) became the fourth university of technology to join the federation. The annual report 2016 of the 4TU.Federation, which is to be published today, consists of the activity reports of the federation’s Board’s and Committees, its various research centres, the joint Master’s degree programmes and it reports on the formal external relationships that the 4TU.Federation has built up.

Launch of data funds

4TU.Centre for Research Data introduces two funds to support researchers in their research data management: the Data Refinement Fund and the Data Paper Fund.

Collaboration Dutch and German mathematics

On  October 17, 2016, Prof. Kees Vuik (TU Delft) on behalf of 4TU.AMI and Prof. Dr.Martin Skutella (TU-Berlin) on behalf of Matheon (Research Center “Mathematics for Key Technologies” https://www.matheon.de/) signed a cooperative agreement between these two national research centres with similar missions: “to bring advanced mathematics to key technologies and complex systems”. This in the confident expectation that working together will add value to the separate efforts of the two centres. This agreement is a continuation for 6 years of the previous successful cooperation period on Mathematics for Key Technologies.

4TU.AMI and its German counterpart Matheon form one of the largest clusters on the field of mathematics in Europe. This agreement establishes a framework for mutual assistance in achieving their aims in the field of Applied Mathematics and Education. It will support collaborative research, relationships, exchange of students, junior and senior researchers, educational programs in mathematical modelling and its applications, e-learning and didactics of mathematics for  university students of the TU-‘s, and programs that stimulate interest in mathematics for secondary students.

Working on the next generation of batteries in the new battery lab
On 6 April, a new laboratory was opened at the Reactor Institute Delft (RID): the Battery Lab of Radiation, Science & Technology. This unique lab is an advanced facility for researching and testing current and future battery systems and related electrochemical devices. In the lab, TU Delft scientists Erik Kelder and Marnix Wagemaker and their research teams will work on the next generation of batteries: from cheap, static renewable energy storage to high energy density batteries for electric...
