Carlas Smith awarded Veni grant
Seven Veni’s for TU Delft researchers
NWO has announced the Veni recipients for 2018. Amongst them are seven scientists from Delft University of Technology. The Veni grants allow researchers who have recently obtained their PhD to conduct independent research and develop their ideas for a period of three years. The seven recipients and their reseach topics are:
Delft simulation model for optimum performance during team time trials
During his Mechanical Engineering degree programme, TU Delft student Mats Overtoom came up with a mathematical model that could provide answers to such questions as ‘What is the optimum changeover schedule for a cyclist in a team time trial?’ and ‘How fast does he need to cycle up a mountain to reach optimum performance?’. The input for the simulation model was data from cyclists from Team Sunweb and specific track information. It gives the Dumoulin team strategic tips for optimum performance, the best order of the cyclists and the length of turns on the front during a team time trial.

Subsidy for making the ‘smartest part of the North Sea’
An advanced test area of 10 x 10 nautical miles (= about 185 football pitches) is planned for off the coast of The Hague, just outside the port of Scheveningen. This area is unique in the world. It is within this ‘smartest stretch of the North Sea’ that the likes of Delft Data Science (DDS) researchers Anna Vilanova and Elmar Eisemann will get the chance to further their research.
