Eindhoven. The city of technology, design and knowledge. A vibrant and dynamic city that has at its heart the inexhaustible source of knowledge that is Eindhoven University of Technology. We are proud of our city, and we are proud of our university. We want to focus more on this every year than ever before. We are doing just that on Friday 21 September with MomenTUm: the academic celebration of the year.

This will bring together, among other things, the Dies Natalis (the anniversary of the university), the presentation of the honorary doctorate, honoring the best students and teachers of this year and the Bachelor degree awards all into one big event. From 3-5 p.m. our campus will be host to a festive celebration with speakers, music and a catwalk full of students, along with eateries.

tue op ac jaar

We kindly invite you to the opening ceremony for the Academic Year 2018-2019 on Monday, 3 September 2018, from 4 pm to 5 pm.
This year, the opening ceremony will be a little different: without the academic protocol you are used to. Instead, we will focus on the academic year that lies ahead.

Rector magnificus Frank Baaijens will introduce our strategic plan for 2030, president of the Executive Board Jan Mengelers will address some important political issues and former EU Commissioner Robert-Jan Smits will speak about issues relevant to universities and higher education in Europe. Where are we heading in 2030? How can we meet the market’s demand for more engineers while maintaining a high quality of education? What is our vision on open access for science?

Energy Now & TU/e SG - Sustainable Energy Talks

Share Button

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!

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.
