Green light for CASTOR project
We are very pleased to announce that the CASTOR project received a NWA-ORC grant of 1.9 million euro. This means green light for this project as well. CASTOR is all about the sandy-soil landscapes of the east and south Netherlands. These have a wide range of agricultural, recreational and natural functions and are at risk with climate change. Using a living lab approach, the CASTOR project identifies climate-robust landscapes for the future, and together with government and societal partners they design pathways towards these.

Living dikes will come alive
We are very pleased to announce that Bas Borsje, Associate Professor Nature-based Flood Protection, received a NWA-ORC grant of 1.9 million euro to start working on the Living Dikes project. Living dikes are a promising way to climate‐proof our coast. These dikes consist of a soft foreland and a green dike, thereby slowing down the waves and reducing the wave load on the dikes. This research facilitates the construction of living dikes by weighing interests, testing living dikes under extreme conditions and formulating design rules to be applied by end‐users.

Urban Resilience Trend reports by Environmental Engineering students
For the course ‘Integrated Project’, master students in Environmental Engineering at the faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences of TU Delft were given the opportunity to make trend reports about a specific shock/stress of a chosen metropolis. These trend reports will be aligned with the Open Educational Resources (OER) about (Urban) Resilience Engineering.

Smart dashboard should predict regional outbreaks COVID-19
The first dashboard in the Netherlands that will predict, with great certainty, where local outbreaks of COVID-19 infections may occur. A multidisciplinary research team led by Nelly Litvak, Professor of Algorithms for Complex Networks at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e), will work on this dashboard, thanks to a half million-euro grant from ZonMW. The team has worked since the corona outbreak in March to provide such predictions using aggregated mobility information from cell phone usage. The grant will be used to significantly improve those predictions, through the smart combination with data from the COVID Radar App. This will enable safety regions, responsible for local and regional corona measures, to intervene faster and more effectively in the event of imminent corona outbreaks and can even prevent the emergence of new hotbeds.
