Innovation for Small and medium-sized enterprises?

On 11 June Dr Martijn Wisse, associate professor and one of the founders of the TU Delft Robotics Insitute,  was present at Greentech 2014. On this two-yearly international fair for professionals in the horticulture industry, he presented the prestigious ‘Factory in a day’, a robotic system that can be set up and made operational in 24 hours and is flexible, leasable and cheap. This project makes advanced robot technology available for small and medium sized enterprises.

3TU in the spotlight

The three Dutch technical universities shared a space of more than 50 square metres at the world’s largest industrial fair, with fourteen fascinating showcases presenting some of their latest technologies. The stand in the market’s R&D hall attracted huge interest throughout all five days of the event. At its peak, as many as 400 attendees were present to learn more about the innovations set in train by the three institutions.“The Hannover Messe was an excellent opportunity to show the strength of the Dutch universities of technology,” says IJsbrand Haagsma, Secretary of the 3TU Federation. “Co-operation with global industries, as facilitated through the Messe, is essential to bring smart solutions to the world.”

Two new 3TU.Research Centres launched

With Professor Dirk Heylen of the University of Twente as its director of research, the Humans & Technology Research Centre will investigate interaction between people and technologies. In its main lines of research, the centre plans to bring together computer science, psychology, industrial and related disciplines with a view to exploring new forms of collaboration and so produce innovative developments for a more liveable technological world.

New chairs look ahead

“The 3TU.Federation has laid a solid foundation for collaboration between the three universities of technology in the Netherlands,” he says. “We now have to reinforce what we already have and concentrate upon what is happening abroad, both close at hand and further afield. With our excellent range of research and education, we can play at the top of the league.”

3TU.Centre for Engineering Education established

The world is in need of more and differently trained engineers who can manage grand societal challenges in the field of energy, safety, health, mobility and environment. Under the guidance of director of education Jan van der Veen of the University of Twente, the CEE will strive to jointly inspire, stimulate, support and disseminate effective and high quality Engineering Education through research and application of evidence-based innovations. These will be bolstered by relevant practical research on a variety of themes, with the results disseminated at home and abroad. The CEE intends to be a leader in its field, the institute of first choice for inquiring, ambitious tutors and scientists from the world of engineering education.
