    You Have a Part to Play

    In collaboration with ArtEZ University of the Arts, this project aims to design and create a new, university-wide approach to Higher Education for Sustainable Development (HESD).

  • Securing Tenure, Sustainable Peace?

    In conflict-affected settings, land tenure security of smallholders is seen as essential to prevent local land disputes and sustain peace, enable recovery of rural livelihoods, and advance ecologically.

  • Bureau met toetsenbord, pen en papier

    The controller profession

    This project aims to inventory developments for controllers, based on surveys and interviews in cooperation with the Dutch VRC (Vereniging van Registercontrollers).

  • Open Strategizing for Infrastructures in Transition (PRONTO)

    PRONTO investigates what practices of open strategizing are enacted by infrastructure agencies and develops governance and modelling approaches in support of the development of cross-sectoral infrastructure strategies.

  • Plastic flesjes

    Sustainable plastics

    We combine environmental life cycle assessment, participative system dynamics modelling, and ex-ante policy evaluation to assess the relevant sociotechnical systems around circular plastics and bioplastics.

    Calcium Looping To Capture Co2 From Industrial Processes By 2030 (CaLby2030)

    CaLby2030 focuses on TRL6 demonstration of its pioneering Calcium Looping (CaL) CO2 capture systems using the wellestablished Circulating Fluidised Bed (CFB) technology to a state ready for largescale commercial deployment by 2030.

  • On the Move: Transition towards Sustainable Mobility

    On the Move: Transition towards Sustainable Mobility

    The negative effects of spatial mobility (e.g. congestion, unsafety, fossil fuel use and land use), create a strong pressure to transition towards a more sustainable mobility system. This asks for trend-breaking change strategies.

  • Groene parochie with allotment in Nijmegen

    Green Parishes and Monasteries in the Netherlands

    Parishes and monasteries are also following the social trend of sustainability. The Green Parishes in the Netherlands research project aims to examine and analyse the Catholic Netherlands’ approach to environmental friendliness and sustainability.

    Prioritisation and Risk Evaluation of Medicines in the EnviRonment (PREMIER)

    Pharmaceutical residue can cause environmental damage. Much of the medicines that we use are released into the sewer via excretion. That is why a European research consortium is developing a system that analyses the environmental risks of medicines.

  • Alexander Khajetoorians in het Scanning Probe Microscopy lab

    Quantifying electron-electron forces at the atomic scale

    In this project, researchers will investigate novel correlated electron phases in 2D materials. These phases exhibit unusual superconducting or magnetic behaviour and a better understanding of the role of electron interactions is needed. The research team will therefore use a novel experimental...
