Enrol in the Massive Open Online Course on Gender Equality in the Clean Energy Transition

Enrol in the Massive Open Online Course on Gender Equality in the Clean Energy Transition

A sustainable future is the only future. That is why the energy transition is so important. It is a worldwide, structural change to reshape energy production and shift away from fossil fuels, towards clean sources like hydro, wind and solar power. But even though this transition is a movement at the forefront of change, it is still lacking in certain areas. Most notably, women are significantly underrepresented in the energy sector and transition. TU Delft, together with many international partners, are working on solving this issue within the FemPower project and trough the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Gender Equality in the Clean Energy Transition.

Chips that mimic the brain's adaptability and efficiency

Chips that mimic the brain's adaptability and efficiency

Our world knows more and more supercomputers. But do not be mistaken: the most efficient – and perhaps more importantly: the most flexible – computing is done in the brain, human or otherwise. So what can we learn from how the brain computes? Charlotte Frenkel, recently recognized by NWO as one of the Netherlands' biggest AI talents and thus officially an ‘AiNed fellow’, intends to find out. This new grant allows Frenkel to start a team to research the possibilities of neuromorphic computer chips, inspired by the neocortex area in the brain.

Extreme Weather Phenomena: PHARA's 3D Radar Aims to Better Understand Them

Extreme Weather Phenomena: PHARA's 3D Radar Aims to Better Understand Them

Violent storms and heavy rains are becoming an increasingly pressing concern in today's world, with climate change posing ever greater risks for society. In the Netherlands alone, it is estimated that extreme weather will result in €745 million in damages per year. Yet, one of the biggest problems with extreme weather events is that we still poorly understand them. Thanks to the new PHARA project, funded by NWO for €3.5 million, this could be set to change. PHARA aims to create a 3D weather radar, which would be the first of its kind to measure the growth process of cloud particles.
