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.
Working proactively for safe gas networks in the Netherlands
Dutch gas network operators increasingly face factors that affect the safety of the gas network, such as different qualities of gas that cannot simply be mixed, pipes that have to be replaced, new technologies and changes in the tasks and responsibilities of partners in the chain. Netbeheer Nederland, the sector organisation for all electricity and gas distribution network operators, wants to be able to respond proactively to these challenges.
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.
