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.

Wageningen University joins 3TU

Wageningen University joins the collaboration between the three technical universities in the Netherlands (3TU.Federation). As of today the federation will be known as 4TU.Federation, or simply 4TU, and the cooperation in the field of education and research will be expanded. The four technical universities of Delft, Eindhoven, Twente and Wageningen will intensify their collaboration to strengthen the interaction with industry. With Wageningen University joining, some interesting crossovers between high tech and agri & food come to sight as well as in the areas of water and environment. 

Joint activities
The 3TU.Federation has been working closely together in the field of education and research. There are five 3TU.master programmes, a Centre for Engineering Education and the Institute of Professional Doctorate Education. They connect to the successful growth in student numbers in technical education. The federation has nine Research Centres and the data management is supported by the 3TU.Datacentrum, part of Research Data Netherlands. With Wageningen joining, possibilities for extending the activities are being explored, for example in the field of:

High Tech 2 Feed the World

We are currently facing one of the greatest social challenges of this century: over the coming 40 years, the global food demand will be equal to the total amount of food produced over the last 8,000 years. Applying high-tech systems and materials and new ICT possibilities will support the agrarian and food sectors to meet the enormous social challenges associated with this. Moreover, the competitive position of these sectors in the Netherlands will improve and opportunities will arise to export new systems using these applications. Conversely, high-tech sectors will be challenged to find solutions to the problems that have stood in the way of such applications until now, such as non-uniform products, the circumstances in which systems have to function and limited economic scope for innovation. It is essential that the sectors concerned work intensively together on these opportunities.

An update on CEE

The 4TU.Centre for Engineering Education (CEE) is set up to support and research educational innovations that are taking place at the universities of technology in the Netherlands. In only a short period of time, from September 2014 onwards, CEE’s core team managed to instigate many projects that contribute to the innovation of engineering education. This resulted in various publications, ranging from reports to conference contributions, activities such as workshops and meetings both large and small scale that have been organised. This enabled education staff to learn about innovations, exchange ideas and actively participate.

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...

"Why universities should be run by students"
Only recently, Elisabeth de Vijlder, Mélanie Droogleever Fortuyn, Lennart van de Velde and Sarah Roediger were appointed as University Innovation Fellows. By participating in the Stanford programme, they will contribute to the entrepreneurial climate at the University of Twente. In an opinion article they make some suggestions for change.
