At the TU Delft researchers and students work on solutions that influences the quality of life for many people around the world.

Delft University Fund connects research and companies for projects that need extra support. Funding will be contributed completely to the scientific research.  Currently, the following research initiatives are supported by the fund. 

Chair of Geothermal Energy

Applied Earth Sciences
In this chair, investigation is being done to obtain geothermal heat to heat buildings. Goal is to contribute to developing a sustainable energy sector in the Netherlands. A challenging new topic is deep geothermal energy. Delft University Fund is co-financer of the chair thanks to a gift from Alumni of Applied Earth Sciences.

Customised cancer therapy
