TU Delft | The Hague

Many of the  societal challenges in the 21st century, such as climate adaptation and energy transition, strongly depend on technological innovations. TU Delft considers it its social responsibility to bring state-of-the-art engineering knowledge closer to the world of policy-making. The objective of this effort is to contribute to better informed policy making and implementation.

TU Delft | The Hague is a university-wide programme that aims at building stronger networks with key stakeholders, both in the national politics in the Netherlands, but also important international organizations present in The Hague. The focus of this program lies with three main themes, inspired by the current societal challenges: (1) climate & energy, (2) digitalization and (3) safety & security. TU Delft | The Hague brings knowledge and expertise from all TU Delft faculties around these cross-cutting themes, working towards optimal matches between stakeholder needs and researchers’ expertise, related to these themes. Intensified cooperation with our academic partners in higher education is another aim of this effort. TU Delft | The Hague aims at responsible development and implementation of technological solutions for the challenges of the 21st century 

In order to facilitate this, we will work towards a stronger presence and a growing number of activities in The Hague. Our campus in The Hague will be a thriving and inspiring place for our students, researchers as well as for practitioners to meet and to exchange knowledge and expertise. Our master Engineering & Policy Analysis (EPA) serves as a best practice that has already led to many inspiring collaborations with our stakeholders in The Hague. Building on this basis, TU Delft has set to develop a university-wide perspective on strategic cooperation with national and international presence in The Hague.

We look forward to welcoming you at our campus in The Hague!
