Health, energy, sustainability, water, environment and infrastructures & mobility are among the most important themes in today’s society. TU Delft has researched and made an important scientific contribution to solving issues facing society that relate to these themes. Please take a look at the interesting researches in each theme.
Providing clean, reliable and affordable energy for the world’s population is one of today’s biggest challenges. At the same time green energy technology also offers new economic opportunities. The Delft Energy Initiative provides easy access to the more than 700 energy researchers at TU Delft and brings together researchers, students, companies and governments to tackle the energy challenge.
“How can we deal with our environment in a sustainable way?” Delft engineers and scientists approach these issues in many different ways and from many different angles. Within the projects of Delft Environment Initiative we bring together their expertise – combined with that of our partners – and strive to provide integrated answers to the challenges facing society today, and tomorrow.
Medical technology is the driving force behind innovations in patient-centred healthcare. It requires a close interaction between developers, end-users in the medical world and industry. This ‘supply chain approach’ takes into account the needs and possibilities, from designing to deployment on patients.
Infrastructures and Mobility
To create and consolidate wealth and prosperity in societies, vital infrastructures for water safety and smart mobility are essential. Scientist from the TU Delft work on innovations needed to make these vital infrastructures sustainable, resilient and adaptable.

In the history of the Netherlands, water has been an important and decisive factor for the development of its character, culture and technology. Overseas trade, inland shipping, dikes, polders, and the water mills.Therefore water is a subject that is researched to a greater or lesser in all our faculties. From urban water to the satellites that photograph our oceans, and everything that lies between.
