TU Delft Safety & Security Institute
Who we are
Delft Safety and Security Institute aims to make the world a safer and more secure place. By reasoning from science and society on a global level about global problems. We approach safety and security in a broad sense without limiting us to a specific domain and we always strive to take it one step further.
We develop innovative scientific safety and security methodology and research approaches. With these, we can share, educate, make knowledge accessible and we can answer complex societal safety and security questions. We connect people and knowledge and we work together to achieve results beyond limits.
Our research themes
- Uncertainty quantification & vulnerability assessment
- Safe & secure by design
- Mitigation of impact
- Forensics & failure analysis

PhD course ‘Safe by Design’Open for PhD candidates from all universities and universities of applied science in the Netherlands.
Organized by TU Delft Safety and Security Institute, together with RIVM and VU.
Safety is becoming increasingly relevant in various fields, particularly in designing products and processes. The renewed focus on Safe by Design tries to identify and include safety (along with other important values such as sustainability, security and circularity) at an early stage of design. This course offers an excellent overview of the extensiveness and importance of the integral approach of Safe by Design. The team of lecturers together represent both the broad academic as the more practice-oriented approach and represent TU Delft and VU, and the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) in Safe by Design.

NWO KIC call 'Cooperation between Humans and (semi-)Autonomous Systems'Programme 5 July
The goal of the National XR Day is to show, tell, learn and be inspired by the latest on the use of XR in education and research. The programme is currently being further developed, but you can see the general outline of the day below. We have three topical tracks for the presentations and workshops:
XR in education
XR in research
Apart from that there will be a demo fair during the day, where you can try out different applications and examples of XR use.
