Open Science at TU Delft
Principles and tools for researchers and educators.
Set your own open science goals. They can be different depending on your field of work or career stage. Open science goes beyond publishing– it is a redefinition of scientific collaboration and output.

Solving a riddle with the communityAircraft tell air traffic controllers and observers on the ground information about their position, speed, etc, thus allowing them to be tracked. Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) and Mode S are two types of radar systems that allow air traffic control to receive this information and monitor aircraft’s movements and positions. Hence, ADS-B and Mode S signals are incredibly valuable sources of information for those studying air traffic management and aircraft performance modelling. In his new book “The 1090 Megahertz Riddle: A Guide to Decoding Mode S and ADS-B Signals”, Junzi Sun, Assistant Professor at the Department of Control and Simulation, Faculty of Aerospace Engineering, offers a practical guide for researchers and engineers to unlock these open aircraft surveillance data.
Enabling the Continual Transformation of Coastal Dynamics EducationApproximately half the world’s population lives and works within a couple of hundred kilometres of a coastline – there is a thirst for coastal dynamics knowledge at every shore. This is why, since its publication in February this year, the open textbook “Coastal Dynamics” by Dr. Judith Bosboom, senior lecturer Coastal Engineering at the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences, and Prof. Marcel Stive, Emeritus Professor of Coastal Engineering, has now been downloaded almost 4000 times in more than 36 countries.
Urban Microclimate Modelling with SPACERGYDaniela Maiullari is a PhD student in the Department of Urbanism in the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment at Delft University of Technology. By focusing on the relationship between urban form, urban microclimate, and the energy demand of buildings, her doctoral research addresses the transition towards low-carbon cities in future climate warming scenarios, and the increased need for space cooling.
Making the most out of whey with open knowledge & peer reviewMilk and cheese play major roles in many diets all around the world. Yet, few are aware of the problems brought about by cheese whey – a massive by-product from dairy processing. “Here in Brazil, I came across so many difficulties in finding information about how much whey was produced, and what was done with it,” said Maria Paula Giulianetti de Almeida, PhD candidate with Gustavo Mockaitis in the Interdisciplinary Group for Agricultural and Environmental Biotechnology at the University of Campinas Faculty of Agricultural Engineering and CAPES visiting doctoral researcher in the Weissbrodt Group for Environmental Life Science Engineering at the TU Delft Department of Biotechnology, “so I decided to dig deeper into this.”
Python Essentials for GIS Learners: A Targeted FAIR Research Workshop by TU Delft’s Digital Competence CentreAre you interested in learning to program with Python? Are you currently working with data using geographic information systems (GIS) or interested in doing so? Would you like to apply computational thinking and data analysis tools to your research?
These were questions posed to members of the Historical GIS (HGIS) and Delft Digital Humanities (DDH) communities within the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment to invite their participation in the ‘Python Essentials for GIS Learners’ workshop. The workshop was coordinated by the TU Delft Digital Competence Centre (DCC) from 15th to 17th March.
