5 days of large exposure of OMI, TROPOMI and air quality innovation developments from GRS & KNMI at the TU Delft research exhibition 2017

On 06-08 June 2017, was held the largest scientific exposition of the Netherlands in Delft by the technological university (see video summary). These 3 days of  TU Delft research exhibition was a nice opportunity to meet diverse visitors from business, government institutions, students and any public / citizen interested in technology innovation and the latest developments about air quality activities. Just to name a few: the European parliament, 3M, KPN, Innovation Quarter, Delft Data Science, the mayor of Delft, Airbus, TNO, ERASMUS Rotterdam, students from national and international technical universities etc… The TU Delft research exhibition 2017 also celebrated the 175th birthday of the university!

With more than 1800 visitors from more than 400 different companies, the global event was successful.

A very nice opportunity organised by the TU Delft Valorisation centre and the Dig-IT! project. It was a pleasure to share our motivations about satellite observations, the NO2 trends already observable over the 13 years of OMI mission (and emphasized by Barak Obama in 2016), our recent development on aerosol height measurements, the future TROPOMI within the ESA COPERNICUS programme, our very exciting international collaborations in particular with China and our vision of the next developments & partnership in Delft.


And as a follow up, our research exhibition continued during the week-end of 10-11 June 2017 at the theatre de Veste in Delft.


We are very grateful to all the organizers (in particular the DIG-it! project & the TU Delft valorisation centre), and the visitors who stopped by our stand for listening and asking stimulating questions! I am afraid words cannot serve justice for all the huge organisation work made for this event. Many great thanks therefore to all of you!

We are looking forward to reading or hearing from your feedback and to seeing you again at a next exhibition opportunity!
