Cryo-chip overcomes obstacle to large-scale quantum computers
QuTech has resolved a major issue on the road towards a working large-scale quantum computer. QuTech (a collaboration of TU Delft and TNO), together with Intel, has designed and fabricated an integrated circuit that can operate at extremely low temperatures when controlling qubits, the essential building blocks of a quantum computer.

New TU Delft Code of Conduct
How do we address our responsibilities towards each other and to society? TU Delft finds it important for employees and students to keep talking to each other about this issue and take action if we feel it is necessary.

Health problems from air pollution often originate from distant emissions
Air pollution, and the associated premature deaths, are strongly affected by distant emission sources. In the US about half of the premature mortality occurs outside the state that produces the emissions.

New report on digital credentials of academic achievements
Technology has the potential to profoundly change higher education. However, the way that academic credentials are issued and managed has not yet taken advantage of the possibilities of digital technology, according to a new report authored by the Digital Credentials Consortium. The consortium is working on the design of verifiable digital academic credentials.

NWO grants research proposal On the Move: Transition towards Sustainable Mobility
NWO has granted the research proposal “On the Move: Transition towards Sustainable Mobility”. This is a joint project of Radboud Universiteit Nijmegen and TU Delft. In collaboration with public stakeholders and private companies, this project develops and tests an innovative approach that systematically deals with uncertainties in a mobility system that needs to become more sustainable.

New software to better understand conversations between cells
One of the most fascinating and important properties of living cells is their capacity for self-organization. By talking to each other cells can, among other things, determine where they are in relation to each other and whether they need to turn certain genes on or off. Thus, large groups of cells are able to work together and organise into all kinds of tissues. Researchers at Delft University of Technology have now developed software that can predict and visualise conversations between cells on the basis of the molecules involved.
