Impressive number of grants for 3mE at the Delft Bioengineering Institute’s BioDate 2018
The number of BioDate projects to receive grants from the Delft Bioengineering Institute again shows that 3mE researchers like to work with people from different disciplines. Our researchers are involved in eight of the fifteen proposals to have been awarded a grant for an interdisciplinary graduation project.
BME leads research project for patients who experience balance problems following a stroke

Start test in living lab: waterstofgas als alternatief voor aardga
Geen aardgas meer binnen de bebouwde omgeving, maar groen waterstofgas. Of dat een praktisch bruikbare oplossing is, wordt met medewerking van netwerkbedrijven Alliander, Enexis Groep en Stedin onderzocht bij The Green Village. Vrijdag 15 juni lanceren zij in dit living lab bij de TU Delft hun plan voor de Waterstof-straat en kan een start worden gemaakt met de bouw ervan.

Antarctica ramps up sea level rise
Ice losses from Antarctica have increased global sea levels by 7.6 mm since 1992, with two fifths of this rise (3 mm) coming in the last five years alone.The findings are from a major climate assessment known as the Ice Sheet Mass Balance Inter-comparison Exercise (IMBIE), to which TU Delft also contributed, and are published today in Nature.
MOR team from TU Delft
The Delft University of Technology is the largest and oldest Dutch public technical university, located in Delft, the Netherlands, providing technical education for the last 175 years. Known for its high quality of education and research, the university was ranked 3rd for the Architecture and the Built Environment subject and 4th for Civil Engineering subject in 2018. TU Delft being an internationally oriented university is reflected well in the MOR team, since its members are originated from more than 15 different countries.

In-depth analysis of safety for swimmers around the Sand Engine
Pumping huge volumes of sand onto the coastline has effects on currents, waves and swim safety. Max Radermacher has compiled the first analysis of this problem to allow targeted measures (such as extra coastguards) to be taken where necessary. Radermacher will be awarded a PhD at TU Delft for his work on this subject on Friday 15 June.

TU Delft helps develop digital ID for use on your phone
In addition to your passport and driving licence, a phone application that enables you to prove your identity quickly and securely and also offers even more privacy options could soon be possible. As part of the Dutch Blockchain Coalition, Delft University of Technology (TU Delft, The Netherlands) has joined forces with the Netherlands Identity Data Agency (RvIG), a division of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Kingdom Relations (BZK), IDEMIA (the current manufacturer of Dutch passports) and law firm CMS, in developing an initial prototype for a digital stamp that could fulfil this purpose in the future. This digital identity is based on TU Delft’s innovative blockchain technology, known as Trustchain. The prototype was demonstrated at a BZK event held on 7 June. After the summer, a consumer trial of this technology will be launched in two Dutch municipalities.
Marcel Ottens’ group to participate in new International Training Network
As part of a large European biopharmaceutical consortium, the research group of Marcel Ottens will participate in a 4M€ Marie Curie International Training Network (ITN).
4TU Resilience Engineering Centre officially launched
Large power failures or heavy storms demonstrate how vulnerable our infrastructure is. The four technical universities in the Netherlands (Delft University of Technology, Eindhoven University of Technology, University of Twente, and Wageningen University and Research) are joining forces in the field of Resilience Engineering. On 7 June, the plans for the centre have been explained during an international launch event in Rotterdam.
