TU Delft | The Hague
TU Delft has set to develop a university-wide perspective on strategic cooperation with The Hague’s stakeholders, in the context of The Hague as the national centre of governance and international city of peace and justice. Many of our 21st century’s societal challenges, such as climate adaptation and energy transition, depend on technological innovations. As an integral part of its societal impact strategy, TU Delft brings state-of-the-art engineering knowledge closer to the world of politicians, advisors, policy makers making and executive agents in The Hague. The objective of this effort is to contribute to better understanding, better policy making and better implementation.
TU Delft | The Hague strategic programme entails building stronger network connections, developing (applied) research and education programmes, and creating a stronger presence and visibility of TU Delfts activities in The Hague.
The team encourages involvement of all TU Delft faculties, in order to achieve optimal matches between stakeholder needs and researchers’ expertise and interests. Intensified cooperation with our partners in higher education is also explored.
TU Delft’s contribution will focus on responsible development of technology and responsible innovation, in which values play a pivotal role.
To facilitate this, it is our ambition to work towards a strong presence and a growing campus in The Hague, that will be thriving and inspiring place for our students, researchers and practitioners to study, to meet and to exchange knowledge. Our master Engineering & Policy Analysis (EPA) serves as a best practice that have led to many initiatives for joint research projects, guest lectures, thesis projects and seminars. In addition, it provides a stepping stone to create and further develop strategic cooperation with stakeholders in The Hague, in inspiring directions.

What does Dutch society think about Dutch climate policy?From March 9, 2023 to April 21, 2023, all Dutch citizens can advise politicians on climate policy through the National Climate Consultation. Through the so-called Participatory Value Assessment (PWE in Dutch), researchers will enable Dutch citizens to provide the House of Representatives with advice.

TU Delft in The Hague
Any degree programmes taught in The Hague will still be true Delft programmes. “It will not become a Hague programme. Think of it as Delft meets The Hague: Delft will capitalise on the opportunities offered by The Hague and will give something in return in the shape of its students and staff. It's important that the students on our Hague campus feel connected with TU Delft. We will encourage this by organising activities on campus and appointing supervisors from Delft, for example. After all, most students prefer to graduate from TU Delft.
The importance of place
“Despite the increasingly global nature of the world we live in, the importance of place is still critical,” explains De Bruijn. “The location of a university is not trivial. A lot of important international institutions are based in and around The Hague, including the Peace Palace and internationally oriented government planning offices. Operating within the same square kilometre will give EPA a side-door to high-powered politics and law. Add an innovative staff and innovative students to the mix and watch the synergy develop!”
You can see the practical side everywhere you look, which means that we can concentrate on theory as well as practice. There are countless opportunities for new, exciting, teaching formats. Take the real-life cases coming directly from the work floor, supervision from professionals in the field or topical interest lectures. We can also bring simulation and gaming activities with us to The Hague and our brilliant, internationally oriented students can take part in think tanks, or get involved in (or even organise) social debates.
