4TU.Federation investing in high tech for a sustainable future

The 4TU.Federation has awarded a total of 22 million euros to five proposals within the framework of the call ‘High Tech for a Sustainable Future’, thus giving a strong impetus to research into sustainable technology.  In doing so, the Netherlands’ four universities of technology (TU Delft, TU Eindhoven, University of Twente, Wageningen University), are taking the lead in making a significant impact on social challenges in the long term.

Call High tech for a sustainable future

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.

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...

‘Safe sleep’ advice to prevent cot deaths not always being taken
A substantial proportion of parents do not follow the advice they are being given to make sleep safer for their baby. This is one of the findings of the Peiling Veilig Slapen (Safe Sleep Survey), whose results were published this week. Ignoring this advice, for instance with regard to a safe sleeping position or a safe bedroom environment, raises the risk of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome), also known as ‘cot death’: the sudden and unexpected death of a (usually sleeping) baby for which a thorough autopsy can find no explanation. In the Netherlands, every year between and 10 and 20 babies below the age of twelve months die in this way. Compared to other developed countries, the Netherlands have the lowest reported rates of SIDS.
