Enno Schröder and Servaas Storm in various media on Economic Growth and Carbon Emissions
Wishful thinking and tinkering won’t cut it. Nothing short of a mass mobilization for deep de-carbonization across the global economy can avert the looming climate catastrophe.
Safe and secure data marketplaces for innovation
Data-driven business models are a key engine of our digitised society. To achieve data-driven innovation, it is important that companies also share data. Examples include sharing data with competitors in order to understand changes in consumer behaviour or with partners to enable smarter deliveries of goods. With the SafeDEED project, TU Delft collaborates with a consortium of European companies and universities to develop technologies to help these kinds of marketplaces get off the ground and become successful.
How to guarantee public values in crowd-based innovations?
In today’s society, citizens are increasingly taking on a new role relative to the government and business community in the supply of products and services such as energy and transport. Examples include initiatives such as neighbours who join forces to purchase wind turbines, house swaps via Airbnb and transport using Uber. This can present challenges for the existing public structures, creating tension between the public sector and these initiatives.
How games can solve problems in the transport sector
The idea of gaming may make you think of young people spending all day playing on their tablets. However, TU Delft researchers are also involved in gaming, but in this case for science purposes. The TU Delft GameLab works with business and industry on the development of both analogue and digital serious games in order to make complex issues manageable and find solutions for processes in which numerous players with different interests collaborate.
Creating a tolerant society with games and classical music
Openness and tolerance are essential public values in our democratic society. Being prepared to actively listen to each other is a fundamental aspect of an inclusive and sustainable society. But whether we are all such good listeners is questionable; in fact we often overestimate our ability to truly listen to other people and therefore understand them.
Bridging the gap between new technology and safety & responsibility of self-driving cars
Self-driving cars are no longer science-fiction. Although many benefits are expected of automated driving systems (ADS), such as reducing congestion and less crashes, ethical concerns also arise.
Improving the efficiency of Customs inspections in the logistics supply chain
In the years ahead, Customs at Schiphol airport and the Port of Rotterdam are set to have a lot of work on their hands. In the next five years, the huge growth in e-commerce and the imminent Brexit will lead to an increase from 160 million to 500 million in the number of Customs declarations passing through these major logistics hubs of Europe. This massive increase calls for smart ways of working in order to guarantee efficient risk analysis and cut costs in processing Customs import declarations.
