Seed funding projects

With its seed funding program, the Safety & Security Institute aims to increase the impact of safety & security research and education at TU Delft and to strengthen the position of TU Delft in this field. Each year, usually around fall, a call for proposals from TU Delft researchers is issued. Proposals can be submitted on each of the four central themes of the institute. In 2020 and 2021 more than 250.000 euro was awarded to projects involving researchers from all TU Delft faculties. Below an overview of projects awarded within each of the four themes: (1) uncertainty quantification & vulnerability assessment, (2) safe & secure by design, (3) mitigation of impact and (4) forensics & failure analysis.
