Inaugural lecture by Prof.dr.ir. 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.

Slim energienet Ameland!

Innovatief energienet voor verdere verduurzaming

Op Ameland wordt hard gewerkt aan de realisatie van een betaalbare, betrouwbare en CO2-neutrale energievoorziening voor de inwoners en bezoekers van Ameland. Het eiland wil 15 tot 20 jaar voorop lopen in de energietransitie en staat daarom voor de volgende uitdaging: de realisatie van een slim energienet om de verdere verduurzaming van de energievoorziening op Ameland mogelijk te maken.

De partners van Convenant Duurzaam Ameland (gemeente Ameland, Eneco, GasTerra, Hanzehoge- school Groningen/EnTranCe, Liander, NAM, Philips Lighting en TNO) ontwikkelen daarom met
hulp van de Amelanders, een plan voor een innovatief energienet. Deze samenwerking tussen
de gemeente, het bedrijfsleven en lokale partijen is bijzonder net als een plan dat voor één heel gebied wordt uitgewerkt. De uitkomsten en ervaringen kunnen een voorbeeld zijn voor gebieden in Nederland waar door de energietransitie vergelijkbare uitdagingen zullen ontstaan. Om het energie- net te kunnen realiseren heeft de Gemeente Ameland bij het ministerie van I&M aanvraag gedaan voor de experimenteerstatus.

Cross Media Café - Nieuwe Interfaces & Design

Share Button

Op 30 mei zal het Cross Media Café gaan over nieuwe interfaces voor media en welke nieuwe designkeuzes hierbij mogelijk worden. Tijdens dit café laten we designers aan het woord die laten zien hoe specifiek het design aspect van belang is voor het succes van nieuwe media diensten. Dat gaat van scherm design voor verschillende schermen, tot design van nieuwe vormen van interactie. Speciale aandacht zal daarbij uitgaan naar design voor apps, chatbots, Snapchat, en Google Tango. Het programma duurt van 14.00-17.00.

Energy Now 2017

Innovating towards zero

In December 2015 the world united to fight climate change in The Paris Agreement. 195 Countries agreed to the world’s first universal action plan to tackle climate change by limiting global warming to ‘well below 2°C’. This historical achievement was just the beginning – now every country must turn their promises into action.

The European Union set key targets for 2020, 2030 and a long-term goal. One of these targets concerns a cut in the greenhouse gas emissions. One of the well-known and important greenhouse gasses is CO2, the emission of CO2 is high and needs to be reduced rapidly. The problem is that for this reduction our economy, lifestyle and infrastructure need to change. How are we going to do this? What do we need to achieve this goal? And is it possible to maintain our current way of living if we want to do so? We will look for answers at the Energy Now congress 2017 ‘Innovating towards zero’. The day will be divided in theme lines with topics such as offshore wind, urban energy and micro grids.
