Public Private Partnerships portfolio

Delft University of Technology participates in the following public-private partnerships:

Advanced Dutch Energy Materials innovation lab (ADEM)

The Advanced Dutch Energy Materials Innovation lab (ADEM) is both a research and investment programme, focused on the development of materials needed for the transition towards sustainable energy resources.

Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions (AMS)

The Amsterdam Institute for Advanced Metropolitan Solutions was founded to create solutions for the complex challenges a metropolitan region like Amsterdam is facing.

Biotechnology based Ecologically Balanced Sustainable Industrial Consortium (BE-Basic)

The BE-Basic Foundation develops industrial biobased solutions to build a sustainable society. The goal is to build a competitive, secure and sustainable biobased economy through industrial biotechnology.

Bioprocess Pilot Facility

In the Bioprocess Pilot Facility (BPF), new sustainable production processes can be scaled up and tested. This is necessary for the transition from an economy based on fossil raw materials to one that uses biomass as raw material.

Catalysis for Sustainable Chemicals from Biomass (CatchBio)

CatchBio aims to develop clean and efficient processes for biomass conversion into low-cost and sustainable biofuels, chemicals and pharmaceuticals.

Dutch Optics Centre

The Dutch Optical Centre is the National Centre in the field of optics and opto-Mechatronics.

Holland PTC

HollandPTC treats patients with complex oncology. The Centre aims to be one of the world’s leading institutes in the field of proton therapy.

Human Disease Model Technology (hDMT)

The Institute for human Organ and Disease Model Technologies (hDMT) investigates organ and disease models on chips.

Quantum Computer en internet (QuTech)

QuTech is an advanced research center for quantum computing and quantum internet.


In RoboValley, more than 190 robotics researchers from a multitude of fields collaborate with other experts, entrepreneurs and decision-makers in both public and private sectors. As a result, a unique network is thriving, with TU Delft Robotics Institute at its heart. This allows RoboValley to take a leading role in the development of the next generation robotics.

The Green Village

The Green Village is a ‘living lab’ on the campus of Delft University of Technology where new technologies in the field of sustainable energy provision, water and waste systems will be tested and applied in a real life environment.


In order to increase exposure and facilitate market introduction of Dutch water and technology sector innovations, educational and research institutes have joined forces with (local) authorities and entrepreneurs in the region of Zuid-Holland to create the Valorisation Programme Delta Technology & Water (VPdelta).
