The Netherland-America Foundation essay challenge!

The Netherland-America Foundation is pleased to offer an Essay Challenge. Sponsored by Dan Adams, one of the founding members of the Biotech industry.  This challenge seeks to elicit ideas from the next generation of thinkers and leaders who will inherit societies whose problems are more complex than ever.  The purpose is to bring to light how the next generation thinks about solutions to global problems.

The essay should address the following question: ‘What global problem worries you the most and how would you propose it could be resolved?’. For example novel virus outbreaks, income inequality, and global warming.

The essay has a word limit of 1000 words, and the deadline for submission is June 30, 2021. The winning three essays will receive awards of $10.000, $5.000 or $2.500 respectively – and will be awarded in the fall at the NAF’s 2021 annual event in New York City.

What can we expect in September?

Fewer and fewer infections and more people being vaccinated: things are moving in the right direction and we are getting more freedom, also on campus. That is just as well, because TU Delft is a campus university. Studying, researching, teaching, working, meeting people… everything takes place on campus whenever possible. Universities have now been asked by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science to prepare for a baseline scenario for the new academic year.

What is it and what does it mean for you as a student?
A number of measures still remain, such as voluntary (self-)testing and a maximum group size. You can find the entire base scenario and the other scenarios here (in Dutch). 

More frequent visits to campus again? 
The idea is to gradually allow more people on campus, so that we can gain experience in hosting larger groups on campus. For example, they are looking at public attendance at graduation events, how to organise (fieldlab) events again, and how to spread the influx of people coming to campus. The following prioritization is used in determining who can come to campus:

  1. Campus-related activities.
  2. Educational activities
  3. Non-campus related (office) activities and operation
  4. Large meetings (from third parties)

In the meantime, we are also preparing for a time when Covid-19 is so far under control that no measures are needed on campus at all. You will be informed as soon as more is known.

Keep and eye on the corona website for students for updates


Wat kunnen we verwachten in september?

Steeds minder besmettingen en meer mensen die gevaccineerd zijn: het gaat de goede kant op en we krijgen dus meer ruimte, ook op de campus. Gelukkig maar, want de TU Delft is een campusuniversiteit. Studeren, onderzoeken, doceren, werken, ontmoeten… het vindt bij ons zoveel mogelijk op de campus plaats. Universiteiten hebben nu vanuit het ministerie van OCW het verzoek gekregen om voor te sorteren op een basisscenario  voor het nieuwe academische jaar. Wat is dat scenario en wat betekent dit voor jou als student?

Een aantal maatregelen blijft nog wel bestaan, zoals het vrijwillig (zelf)testen en het hanteren van een maximale groepsgrootte. Je vindt het gehele basisscenario en de overige scenario’s hier.  

Weer vaker naar de campus?

Het idee is om de komende periode geleidelijk meer mensen op de campus toe te laten, zodat ervaring kan worden opgedaan met het ontvangen van grotere groepen op de campus. Zo wordt er gekeken naar de aanwezigheid van publiek bij afstudeerbijeenkomsten, naar hoe we weer (fieldlab)evenementen kunnen organiseren, en hoe de toestroom van mensen naar de campus kan worden gespreid. De volgende prioritering wordt aangehouden bij het bepalen wie er naar de campus kunnen komen:

  1. Campusgebonden activiteiten
  2. Onderwijsactiviteiten
  3. Niet-campusgebonden (kantoor)werkzaamheden en activiteiten
  4. Grote bijeenkomsten (van derden)

Ondertussen bereiden we ons ook voor op een  campus als Covid-19 zo ver onder controle is dat er helemaal geen maatregelen meer nodig zijn. Zodra daar meer over bekend is, word je op de hoogte gebracht.

Hou de coronawebsite voor studenten in de gaten voor updates

Word ambassadeur voor WilWeg, Nuffic.

Ben je recentelijk naar het buitenland geweest en wil je anderen helpen bij hun buitenlandavontuur? Word dan WilWeg-ambassadeur!

Als ambassadeur speel je een belangrijke rol in de campagne van Nuffic. Jij bent ervaringsdeskundige omdat je zelf recentelijk in het buitenland bent geweest of een internationale ervaring in Nederland hebt opgedaan (zoals een stage bij een internationaal bedrijf waar veel Engels wordt gesproken). Je weet ook wat je allemaal moet regelen en hoe het is om in een bepaald land te wonen. Dit jaar al helemaal, omdat je misschien onverwacht terug moest en je buitenlandervaring compleet anders gelopen is dan verwacht.

Wil je meer weten, of je al aanmelden? Ga dan naar deze link.

1.5-meters social distancing
As of 5 June, 1.5-meters social distancing will cease to apply to team and contact sports, for example soccer, volleyball and dancing.

Cafe X
As of 5 June, Cafe X will be open again inside and the closing time will be extended to 22:00! In addition, up to four people will be allowed at a table, both outside on the terrace and inside. Please observe the existing corona measures.
