Dr. A. (Anke) Dählmann


At the Department of Geoscience & Engineering, I provide scientific support to staff and the departmental Management Team. This includes funding advise, connecting with the Innovation & Impact Centre and other Corporate Offices of TU Delft, as well as the TU Delft Urban Energy Institute and incidentally the Delft Research-based Initiatives. I keep an eye on the Dutch research (funding) landscape and sometimes coordinate large-scale proposals.

I am a member of the Dutch and European Associations of Research Managers (ARMA-NL, EARMA), and active in ARMA-NL’s working group for Professional Development of Grant Advisors.
