Increase in the number of students
TU Delft Reactor Institute has noticed a significant increase in the interest of students in nuclear-related courses. Where a few years ago we had 4 to 5 students, we now see 40 to 50 on an annual basis! 

Several TU Delft faculties are conducting research into the chemistry, physics and materials of new-generation nuclear reactors that are safe and sustainable.

The TU Delft Reactor Institute is also using radiation to conduct research into the development of new materials for things such as batteries and solar panels, economical cooling and heating, and for the diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
