ERC Grants for 3 TU’s

The European Research Council (ERC) has awarded a number of 13 grants in the 2015 ERC Starting Grant competition to excellent researchers of the three Dutch technical universities. The granted researchers received grants, worth up to €1.5 million each, to support promising researchers  and in order to help them build their own teams. The Starting Grants are have been awarded to Andrea Caviglia (Delft University of Technology), Tom de Greef (Eindhoven University of Technology), Simon Gröblacher (Delft), Arjan Houtepen (Delft), Rudie Kunnen (Eindhoven), Alvaro Marin (University of Twente),  Sander Otte (Delft), Jantien Stoter (Delft), Ivo Vellekoop (Twente), Miren Vizcaino (Delft), Stephanie Wehner (Delft), Hyun Youk (Delft), Amir A. Zadpoor (Delft).

Furthermore, three ERC Consolidator Grants have been awarded to TU Delft researchers, as part of the ERC 2015 Consolidator Grant competition. With grants worth up to €2 million each, these excellent mid-career scientists will be able to consolidate their research teams and to develop their innovative ideas. 

The ERC's mission is to encourage the highest quality research in Europe through competitive funding and to support investigator-driven frontier research across all fields, on the basis of scientific excellence. ERC has three core funding schemes: Starting Grants, Consolidator Grants, Advanced Grants and Proof of Concept. Funding schemes are open to top researchers of any nationality or age who wish to carry out their frontier research.

Working visit Minster Bussemaker

On Monday 15 February, the Minister of Education, Culture and Science, Jet Bussemaker, paid a working visit to ASML. Discussions were held with representatives of the 3TU.Federation on the importance of a continuous influx of highly-qualified technicians such as those educated at the three universities of technology. ASML indicated that the level of the graduates in the Netherlands matched the needs of the company, but added that there are too few students in the Netherlands graduating in subjects such as electrical engineering, mechanical engineering and computer science. And software engineering is the greatest sticking point. 

21st century calls for innovations in engineering education

Some 160 education professionals of technical universities from all over the world gathered to exchange knowledge and experience about innovations in engineering education at the European Regional  Meeting of the CDIO network on 25 and 26 January. The theme was “ Inventing tomorrow’s engineering education”.  Aldert Kamp, CEE leader of TU Delft looks back on a very successful conference with many enthusiastic participants. Innovations in engineering education are badly needed to prepare the new generation of students for the rapidly changing changing needs of the 21st century, as was stressed by all four keynote speakers. More attention must be paid to multi- and interdisciplinairy thinking, cross-sectoral collaboration, creativity and innovation skills in both Bachelor and Master education. These subjects are leading themes in the educational research that is done by 3TU. Centre for Engineering Education, the event organiser. Participants intensely worked with these themes in fully booked interactive workshops. The conference took place at the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at TU Delft, member of the CDIO network.
