5.7 million euro for hybrid energy storage systems

The Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy has allocated 5.7 million euro to FLEXINet. In the upcoming years, the FLEXINet consortium will develop hybrid energy storage systems – capable of storing both heat and electricity. Pavol Bauer, professor at TU Delft and project leader and coordinator: ‘The aim of FLEXINet is a system that accelerates the energy transition. We hope to make a substantial contribution to reaching climate targets by cleverly combining various techniques – think of blending recycled batteries with flexible heat pumps and the charging of electric cars.’

TU Delft scores at Olympic Games for chip designers

De Olympische Spelen vormen een graadmeter voor de sportprestaties per land. Maar wat weinig mensen weten, is dat er in de wereld van geïntegreerde schakelingen (chips) en slimme sensoren ook zo’n sportief meetmoment bestaat. Namelijk: de ISSCC. Voluit: de International Solid-State Circuits Conference. Het zijn de Olympische Spelen voor chipontwerpers, en die kent een geheel eigen medaillespiegel. Een klassement waarin de TU Delft tot de absolute top behoort.

TU Delft launches new series of TU Delft AI Labs

TU Delft is launching a new series of eight TU Delft AI Labs today. In these labs, scientists are using artificial intelligence (AI) to accelerate scientific progress and help solve societal issues. Another eight labs will be launched later in 2021, bringing the total to 24. In the past year, almost all sixteen of the new Assistant Professor posts opened as part of this programme thus far have been filled. The recruitment of 32 PhD students for the new TU Delft AI Labs will start end of February. In addition, TU Delft will present the labs at the MIT European career fair on 25 February.

Is it memory? Is it a processor? No, it’s both and super-efficient!

Emerging applications for Internet of Things devices – such as personalised healthcare, augmented reality and artificial intelligence – require vast computational power to be integrated into the device itself, but at only a fraction of the energy consumption attainable with current computer architectures. Researchers of the MNEMOSENE project# provided a proof-of-concept of an ultra-low power Computation-in-Memory architecture – a feat for which overall project leader Professor Said Hamdioui was recently presented the prestigious European Union ECS Innovation Award 2020.
