TU Delft | Global Initiative speakers Dare to Dream at Opening Academic Year 2021

News - 19 September 2021

On Monday 6th of September, four members of the TU Delft | Global Initiative Community pitched their dreams as part of the Opening Academic Year 2021. The annual ceremony - which officially signals the start of the new academic year - this year revolved around the theme 'Dare to Dream'. Normally a large gathering, because of Covid-19 the ceremony this time was livestreamed and only attended by the TU Delft Board of Directors. The event was viewed by over 1800 people during its livestream.

Karl Samenjo, Dieuwertje Drexhage, Yask Kulshreshtha, and Pieter Ham all presented their dream solutions for a better world under the umbrella of the TU Delft | Global Initiative. From building floating homes in the Philippines to developing affordable and reusable laryngoscopes, all speakers shared their passions and inspired the new and returning TU Delft community.
