Everything that we consider alive, be it plants, dogs, bacteria or humans, is composed of the same microscopic building blocks: cells. While cells between and even within these organisms can look and behave very differently, they all share the same key functionalities: they can grow, they can divide to proliferate, they can eat and metabolise to...

In recent years, the interest in terahertz technology witnessed a constant increasing interest and attention from the scientific community, as it allows to unlock the THz bandwidth, that can be used for a wide range of applications: it helps the study of biological samples and help medical diagnostics; it serves as a harmless non-destructive...

With increasing renewable energy and cross-sectoral electrification price volatility is increasing. Flexibility through demand-side management and electric storage has the potential for reducing price volatility. In this thesis, using duality theory the flexibility required for constraining price to a maximum limit is quantified. <br/...

Wronska, A.K. (author)
Every century brings its own challenges, but the 21st century is the first in which a global transition towards circularity is required to ensure human existence on this planet. Exhaustion of planetary resources, such as oil and rare elements, must be prevented and sustainable circular value chains introduced into our industry and economy. In...

Zwerver, A.M.J. (author)
The discovery of the counter-intuitive laws of quantum mechanics at the beginning of the 20th century revolutionized physics. Quantum-mechanical properties, such as superposition and entanglement, can be harnessed to create quantum technology that opens a computing power far beyond the computing power that we know today. A quantum computer would...

Huang, B. (author)
People make all kinds of choices every day, such as driving to work rather than taking public transport. Many of these choices have a direct impact on demand for products, services or public infrastructures. Understanding people’s choice behaviour can not only infer people’s preferences for certain products or services but more importantly make...

Although business model innovation (BMI) can create a firm's competitive advantage and enhance its performance, many small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) fail to obtain the expected outcomes when innovating their business model. BMI leads to irreversible fundamental changes in key components of a company's business model, which means it...

A major part of the Netherlands is prone to flooding: roughly 60%. Therefore, a large system of flood defences protects the country from flooding. These flood defences are divided into primary and regional flood defence systems. Primary flood defences protect areas against catastrophical flooding events from the sea, big lakes and major rivers,...

Renewable energy installations and energy storage solutions require a significant amount of critical raw materials such as nickel, cobalt and rare earth elements. The supply chains of these raw materials face many challenges, e.g., these materials are often found at lower grades on land. These complications motivate the search for new resources....

During the course of the 21st century, China has experienced one of the fastest urban growth processes in history. Its rapid urban growth has not only contributed to its industrial and technological development but it has also functioned as a key driver of its national economic growth. As well as bringing many benefits, China’s rapid urban...

Glass is transparent and that differentiates it from most other building materials. As a result it has played a significant role in the development of architecture, given that its use is not only driven by its functionality as a protective layer, but by its ability to transmit light and hence define spaces. The use of glass has typically brought...

The large unexplored space of microbial biodiversity forms a well of untapped potential of enzymes and bioactive compounds. Genomic methods have made significant improvements over the past decades in their analysis of microbial communities. However, several aspects of nature can’t be described by a genome alone, such as expressed functions in...

By 2050 a large proportion of the cars on our roads will be self-driving and completely automated. We will no longer be driving these vehicles, but will be transported comfortably as passengers. We will be able to indulge in all sorts of media items in our vehicles, do work, or even just relax and sleep. Indeed, these fully automated vehicles...

Tanzer, S.E. (author)
Preventing the worst impacts from the ongoing climate crises requires rapid and dramatic reduction of anthropogenic emissions of greenhouse gases to “net zero”. However, it is highly likely that we will also need to remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere to compensate for residual and/or historic emissions. In particular, the industrial...

Motivation. The sustainability technology sectors, encompassing health and sustainable energy technology, play a critically important role in addressing global challenges such as climate change and ageing populations, which require a transition to a low or zero-carbon energy system, and sustainable and affordable healthcare. While these problems...

Jürgens, H. (author)
Microorganisms, enhanced by genetic engineering, are important cell factories for conversion of renewable feedstocks into fuels, chemicals, biomaterials, nutraceuticals and drugs. Microbial synthesis of these products from chemically simple carbon substrates often requires a net input of free energy in the form of ATP, which is typically...

Quantum computing is a flourishing field of scientific and technological research. The development of quantum computing in the past decades is the so-called second quantum revolution, where various aspects of quantum physics, such as entanglement and superposition, are used to form the main building block of computation — the quantum bit, or...

Applying deep neural networks (DNNs) for system identification (SYSID) has attracted more andmore attention in recent years. The DNNs, which have universal approximation capabilities for any measurable function, have been successfully implemented in SYSID tasks with typical network structures, e.g., feed-forward neural networks and recurrent...
