    Maldives Matter | Tomato tests

    Apr 15, 2019

    A Maldivian greenhouse, Dutch horticulture and international stakeholders. To find out how the intended crops will react to the Maldivian climate we are conducting a tomato grow test. Of course we have done initial calculations with the help of a Dutch greenhouse builder. But growing actual tomatoes in a controlled environment in the intended climate is a good benchmark: a hands-on practical approach.

  • Electric Fence Bardiya

    For our project in the context of our minor International Entrepreneurship & Development we will be going to Bardiya National Park, in the southwest of Nepal. In the buffer zone around the National Park many farmers settled on the fertile grounds. As these grounds and farms attract elephants, the elephants rage the villages and farms in search of food.


    IWACA-TECH is about improving water use efficiency in irrigation systems using advanced remote sensing technology and ground observations. 


  • Shock Safe Nepal team 7

    Shock Safe Nepal Team 7

    Shock Safe Nepal Team 7 is formed by five industrial design Master students from Delft University of Technology. 

    The Shock Safe Nepal initiative was founded after the earthquake of 2015, with the main objective to rebuild the lost homes, while minimising the risk of collapse during future earthquakes. Until now, 6 multidisciplinary teams of students of TU Delft have travelled to Nepal in order to perform research on how this main objective can best be achieved. Their aim was to provide citizens with a safe place to live in. We, as team 7, aim to improve the quality of the citizens’ lives by integrating utilities to the buildings. 

  • Rio Coco

    This project was first planned in Nicaragua. Due to the persistent protests against the government and unsafe circumstances in the country, the project location had to be changed. After a thorough search, El Progreso, Panama was chosen as the new project location. 

  • Lilihan Buildup

    During the summer of 2018, the start will be made on the ‘Lilihan Buildup’, a innovative and sustainable project to improve living conditions for the local inhabitants of the remote and hard to reach part of the village of Altavista. The plot of our project lies on a hill called Lilihan Hill which is located on Poro Island, Cebu province, Philippines.


    LUMEN: A Green and Affordable Alternative for Night Fishers

    LUMEN is a design team consisting of 5 students from Delft University of Technology. Our design team will collaborate with Sagar Energy Solutions, a start-up in Tanzania that focuses on transforming off-grid communities by providing them with clean and affordable energy. Together with this startup, it is our mission to change the night fishing industry in Tanzania.


  • Energy for Refugees

    Energy for Refugees is an initiative of Energy Club from TU Delft. Our goal is to bring sustainable energy to people who are most in need.

    With this year's project we are helping the PIKPA refugee camp in Lesvos. In July, we will travel to the camp with our team of 7 international students to install a sustainable energy system based on PV-panels together with the refugees. Electricity is very important to provide the refugees with the basic needs such as food, hygiene, light, and heat. That is why we have been working to help these refugees.


  • Bangla

    In Western civilisation it is rather common to open the tap and clean and safe drinking water is available. This is however not the case for very many people all around the globe. In Bangladesh for example is the use of handpumps still common nowadays. These handpumps pump up groundwater which contains high amounts of arsenic in some areas. Arsenic has many negative health effects on the long term such as skin diseases, infertility and tumours in the intestines.

  • Floating Homes

    Floating Homes in the Philippines will be the solution of the large-scale flood problems that the people in the Philippines face daily. The floating home project aims to build typhoon resilient, affordable homes that provide local communities with a safe and healthy living environment. instead of fighting the water, they will live with and on the water.

  • Chako

    From the 6th of November, We, David, Marleen and Roos will be for three months in Zanzibar, Tanzania. There is still a lot of poverty at Zanzibar and the waste disposal system is still really bad. Chako tries to tackle both problems by recycling garbage into beautiful products done by the local population. This products will be sold to for a fair price to tourists and the employees of Chako will get their fair wages. So Chako doesn't only make the island cleaner, it also provides jobs for the local populations.
