Results of the first year of strategic collaboration between Alliander and Radboud University

On Tuesday 28 March, results after one year strategic partnership between Alliander and the Radboud University were presented. Since 1 March 2022 Alliander and the Radboud University signed a declaration of strategic partnership. This collaboration has the goal to accelerate and support the energy transition in the Netherlands.

Two examples

One of the direct results is that mechanics do not need a heated frying pan any more to check whether the electricity cable in the ground is moist or not. It can be checked now with a device that fits in your hands. It is unknown whether the mechanics will miss the frying pan in their van or not.

Also, two new research themes are added to the collaboration. We extend the collaborative research from technical research (Faculty of Science) to management and area development research (Faculty of Management). More topics are yet to come.

Next time

At this results' event, people came together to discuss the collectively gained (research) results and be inspired for future joined (research) ideas. In this second results event, we extended the number of invitees. All theme leads presented their results of their research theme for the other theme leads and people in close connection with the collaboration. Afterwards, there were in depth discussions and enthusiastic brainstorming for future projects.

Next time we intend to make this inspiring event even bigger: anybody working for Alliander or the Radboud University will be welcome.
