De meningen ge-uit door medewerkers en studenten van de TU Delft en de commentaren die zijn gegeven reflecteren niet perse de mening(en) van de TU Delft. De TU Delft is dan ook niet verantwoordelijk voor de inhoud van hetgeen op de TU Delft weblogs zichtbaar is. Wel vindt de TU Delft het belangrijk - en ook waarde toevoegend - dat medewerkers en studenten op deze, door de TU Delft gefaciliteerde, omgeving hun mening kunnen geven.

It’s time to celebrate what our city is good at: Delft will be combining the best of technology and innovation in a varied programme.

Everyone will be challenged to join the debates, to inspire each other, and to create together. Test your knowledge and skills, take a look into the future, and meet the scientists behind the projects.

From June 1 to 5 2015, the city of Delft and the campus will be hosting the brand new International Festival of Technology. During this week, Delft will be the scene of master classes, challenges, debates, art walks and open lab days, as well as special performances like ‘Professors in the Theater Arena’ and ‘The Iceman’.

There will also be workshops for children, while TU Delft students will make an attempt to set a new ‘crate bridge’ world record. The programme is not yet complete!

One thing is sure: the festival will be packed with surprises and encounters. And everyone will be able to enjoy it all, because the Inholland University of Applied Sciences ‘Groentestudentenbus’ will be covering the festival via a livestream.
