Megacities looming ahead
Challenging our perceptions
Of what a town looks like
Science fiction gone real
Or dreams in the making?
All interconnected and fully networked
They become intelligent cities
Creating new wealth and new havens
Where millions can live
Happily ever after

173rd Dies Natalis, 9 January 2015

TU Delft celebrated the university’s 173rd anniversary with a varied programme on the theme of Intelligent Cities. Our world is urbanising at a tremendous rate. How can we keep our future megacities safe, sustainable and at the same time fun to live in? By making them into intelligent cities, where technology is a catalyst for social, economic and ecological development. On the occasion of this year’s TU Delft foundation day celebrations, we looked ahead towards such intelligent cities and the way in which our research can make a contribution to them.
