Energy Now & TU/e SG - Sustainable Energy Talks

SETalks 2018
New technologies for storing and transporting energy are the key to a sustainable energy system. A student, a scientist and an entrepreneur present their ideas: get inspired!

Soon On Demand

A serious issue with common sustainable energy resources like solar panels is their weather-dependency: on sunny days they generate too much energy, on rainy days it’s not enough. In the current system, supply and demand do not meet. New technologies for storing and transporting energy are therefore required. In short 10-minute talks, entrepreneur Robin Bergh, TU/e-student Luc Brinkman and a researcher Gerard van Rooij present new inventions and insights for sustainable energy storage and conversion.

Science Café Tilburg - Dementie: zicht op genezing?

Share Button

In Nederland lijden ongeveer 260.000 mensen aan dementie. Dit aantal zal als gevolg van de vergrijzing en de toegenomen levensverwachting alleen maar toenemen. Van hen heeft zo’n 70 procent de ziekte van Alzheimer. Een ongeneeslijke ziekte, maar voor hoe lang nog?

Begin 2017 stelde Philip Scheltens, hoogleraar neurologie en directeur van het VUmc Alzheimercentrum, nog vóór zijn pensioen – hij is nu 60 – een medicijn voor Alzheimer ontwikkeld te willen hebben. Hoe realistisch is dit doel? En hoe ziet zo’n medicijn eruit? Tijdens het Science Café van dinsdag 16 januari komt hij hierover vertellen. Discussant is Willy Garenfeld,die als ouderenpsychiater bij GGz Breburg veel met dementie te maken heeft.

De gespreksleiding is in handen van journalist Ward Deckers. WiWa brengt een toepasselijk openingslied ten gehore.

De livestream wordt mede mogelijk gemaakt door de faculteiten Medische en Klinische Psychologie én Cognitieve Neuropsychologie van de Tilburg University.

Datum: Dinsdag 16 januari 2018
Tijd: 20.00u (zaal open 19:30), wees op tijd, want vol=vol
Locatie: Factorium (Koningsplein 11a)
Entree: €3 (s.v.p. gepast en contant). Studenten en bibliotheekleden krijgen op vertoon van hun pas gratis toegang. Dit evenement telt voor TiU-studenten mee voor het AF-certificaat.
Reserveren: Via deze link kunt u een plekje in de zaal reserveren. Entree betaalt u dan alsnog aan de deur. Zonder reservering kunnen wij geen toegang garanderen.

Inaugural lecture by Ines Lopez Arteaga

In engineering, acoustics connects seemingly unrelated worlds. Although engineered systems are very diverse (think of a toothbrush and a cruise ship, for example), noise generation is governed by the same basic principles and can be controlled by applying similar solutions. The challenges in engineering acoustics require knowing, understanding

and exploiting these common aspects in order to reach new findings. In her inaugural lecture, Ines Lopez Arteaga will describe these sound connections and discuss the implications for her research. Furthermore, she will share her passion for educational innovation and her views on the role of universities in a connected society.

ASD Graduation Symposium and Ceremony

On October 31, 2017, the 5th generation trainees of the post-master PDEng program Automotive Systems Design will receive their diploma. For the first time a diploma will be handed over to the 4 trainees who followed the MSD-track (Mechatronic Systems Design).

Preceding the official ceremony we organize a symposium. During the last 10 months (MSD-track 12 months) of this 2-year program, the candidates have been working on individual design projects in Eindhoven, Beuningen, Woerden, Utrecht, Tilburg and Leuven (Belgium). At the symposium they will present the results of their work.
