TU Delft is keen to play a prominent role in the “top sectors” defined by the Dutch government. Activities to this end over the next few years – knowledge development, internationalisation and implementation of the human capital agenda – will be tailored to our focus as a university: in each top sector, the programmed research spans the entire range, from curiosity-inspired to application-driven. Our scientific contributions to these sectors are specified in innovation contracts with government and the business community.
TU Delft is making a substantial contribution to 7 of the 9 economic top sectors: Water, Energy, High-Tech Systems and Materials, Life Sciences, Chemicals, the Creative Industry and Logistics. The diagram below shows which of our faculties are involved with each of the economic top sectors.
