Expert needed for Interview Bachelor Thesis

Dear members,

My name is Frank and I am a student at the University of Amsterdam.
At the moment, I am working on my thesis for the bachelor Social Geography and Urban Planning at the University of Amsterdam. My research is about the influence of electric cars on urban sprawl. The focus of my research will be on urban sprawl and the increase in automotive mobility and in the increase in efficiency of fuel consumption (both for electric cars and gasoline cars). For this, we have to do some fieldwork and for my thesis I have chosen to do in-depth-interviews.

Are you, or are there in your team people, interested in helping me do my research? Because of the current situation around the corona-virus, the interviews will take place in a different form, for example through Zoom or Skype. These interviews can be conducted in English or Dutch.

Thank you in advance and kind regards,

Participants needed for a fun virtual session about responsible technologies in public spaces.

Do you wish to live in a world where everything you do is being monitored by the government like the world described by George Orwell in his novel 1984 or how about be sent to jail before even committing a crime like in the movie and novel Minority Report? I think not then what kind of world do you want to live in? It is a fact that smart technologies are here and governments usage of them is an inevitable future and if we wish for them to use these technologies responsibly then we must first ourselves must know how they should be used.

De leefwereld van groot zakelijke ontvangers in Amsterdam… hoe ziet die er uit?

Hoe heb jij de facilitaire logistiek georganiseerd voor jouw bedrijf, Universiteit, Ziekenhuis of cultuurinstelling?

Ik ben vooral nieuwsgierig; waar worden jullie nou blij van, waar lopen jullie tegenaan en welke ontwikkelingen maken jullie door?

Ben(of ken) jij de manager inkoop, duurzaamheid, strategie? Of hou jij je op een ander wijze bezig met het reilen en zeilen van (duurzame) facilitaire logistiek? En kun je daar gepassioneerd over vertellen? PostNL Stadslogistiek wil de leefwereld van groot zakelijke ontvangers graag nog beter begrijpen!

Interesse? Stuur een mailtje naar anna.paulides@postnl.nl en ga met mij in gesprek. We plannen een kort (of lang) interview.

Interest in joining a smart energy project

Hello all,
I am really eager to get some experience and expand my knowledge in everything involving smart grids, e-mobility (V2G) and low-temperature district heating. From June onwards, I am available to join an exciting and innovative project which I could collaborate with you on!
At this moment, I am in my second semester at Hanze UAS taking the master in Sustainable Energy and I am requesting any input from you all regarding the possibilities of an internship/master thesis host. I have been working on (including right at this moment) an innovative V2G proposal for a car sharing service in Alkmaar, a domestic hydrogen heating business proposal in Hoogeveen and a low-temp district heating project in Meerstad.

Looking forward to hearing from you, fellow collaborator!

Thinking Tech Partner Needed!

Hello community!
Me and 2 colleagues are structuring a circular business here in the Netherlands and we are looking for a tech partner to help us with the creation of an app and develop a communication system that will improve logistics for transportation, all this to boost circularity in our business model. The tech solution we build together will be part of a circular chain project that we will present for governments.
I am more than happy to discuss this further with whoever is interested :)
Cheers!

From social distancing to societal cohesion?

Withdrawal and indifference to difference has been the prerogative of every day since an unpredictable event, an unprecedented Epidemic, knocked on our doors, without it, to distinguish our origins, or our ideologies.

While many finally waited until the notion of “living together” was finally going to become a reality, nature imposed on us a physical and social distancing, to protect our health and that of others.

European can show resilience, even Resistance, in the face of adversity.
As such, while paradoxically, we are forced to distance ourselves, born a great movement of solidarity and communication.

So let us hope that this serious health crisis is a lesson for us, and that once this ordeal is behind us, "the notion of living together with respect for diversity" becomes obvious.

Looking for Entrepreneurs to participate in research interviews.

Hi all!

My research examines the role of entrepreneurs in human-centric smart cities. In particular, I hope to gain a deeper understanding of how entrepreneurs navigate the city system in order to acquire and utilise resources to increase their impact. I would like to speak with all types of entrepreneurs (serial entrepreneurs, social entrepreneurs, commercial entrepreneurs, ecopreneurs, etc) to identify different sources of support and challenges experienced in different initiatives. This will provide me with a nuanced understanding of the entrepreneurial process, the relationship between entrepreneurs and their environment, and the impact of this relationship from the perspective of the entrepreneurs.

It is not necessary for participants to be working on a particular smart city project. Rather, I am interested in how entrepreneurs operate within the city environment and how they interact with the city.

Marineterrein Amsterdam Last Mile Challenge

Door werkzaamheden in de openbare ruimte kan het een uitdaging zijn om je eindbestemming te bereiken. Heb jij een innovatief idee over hoe de last mile het best afgelegd kan worden? Doe dan mee met de Marineterrein Last Mile Challenge en grijp je kans om zes weken gratis te testen op Marineterrein Amsterdam!

In steden wordt continu gewerkt om leefbaarheid en verkeersstromen te verbeteren. Door de wegopbrekingen die hier soms voor nodig zijn kunnen delen van de stad tijdelijk moeilijk bereikbaar zijn. Als parkeren in de buurt niet kan, hoe zorgen we dan dat mensen hun bestemming bereiken?

Deel je idee
Met de Marineterrein Last Mile Challenge doen we een oproep aan iedereen die een goed idee heeft om de bereikbaarheid te verbeteren en dit wil testen. Vanaf zondag 23 februari is het door werkzaamheden aan de Kattenburgerstraat niet meer mogelijk om te parkeren buiten de poort van het Marineterrein. Een ideaal moment om te experimenteren met oplossingen voor de last mile.

Wat zoeken wij?
Wij zijn op zoek naar innovatieve ideeën die het Marineterrein bereikbaar houden tijdens de wegwerkzaamheden. Dit kan zowel over de weg als over het water zijn, en moet een oplossing bieden aan tijdelijke problemen met de bereikbaarheid: Makkelijk te implementeren, en makkelijk te beëindigen. Als jouw idee gekozen wordt, krijg je de kans dit vanaf eind februari/begin maart gedurende zes weken te testen. De operationele kosten worden vergoed. Houd er dus rekening mee dat je ook snel moet kunnen starten. Stuur je innovatieve idee vóór 21 februari 16.00 uur in via dit formulier!

Alles op een rijtje:
- Last Mile Challenge: Wie heeft de beste oplossing om de tijdelijke last mile soepel te overbruggen?
- We zoeken oplossingen die vernieuwend zijn, in de vorm van hardware, een platform of samenwerking.
- Fietstaxi’s en andere reguliere commerciële activiteiten zijn uitgesloten van deelname.
- Gratis testen op dé plek voor experimenteren op het gebied van stedelijke vraagstukken.
- Gratis exposure en koppeling met gemeente Amsterdam/Chief Technology Office.
- Testduur tot ten minste 20 april.
- Inschrijven kan tot 21 februari, 16.00 uur.

Selectie
Een commissie kiest uit alle inzendingen het beste idee. De commissie bestaat uit:
- Thijs Meijer, adjunct-directeur en procesmanager van Bureau Marineterrein Amsterdam.
- Pim Stevens, projectleider Marineterrein Amsterdam Living Lab.
- Gerben Mienis, thematrekker Last Mile oplossingen.
- Joshua Serrão, innovation officer bij Chief Technology Office, gemeente Amsterdam.

Op basis van een eerste selectie volgt een pitchronde, waarbij de geselecteerde ideeën gepresenteerd worden aan deze commissie. De winnaar wordt vervolgens op korte termijn gekozen, zodat bezoekers van het Marineterrein zo snel mogelijk gebruik kunnen maken van het gekozen idee!

Vragen? Neem contact met ons op via info@marineterrein.nl
https://www.marineterrein.nl/marineterrein-amsterdam-last-mile-challenge/

Disclaimer
Bureau Marineterrein Amsterdam is gerechtigd om te besluiten de challenge (vroegtijdig) te beëindigen als inschrijvingen onvoldoende invulling geven aan de gedefinieerde challenge.
De overeenkomst over het uitvoeren van de last mile challenge wordt in overleg met beide partijen opgesteld en ingevuld na bekendmaking van de winnaar door Bureau Marineterrein Amsterdam.
De uitvoerder Last Mile Challenge is zelf verantwoordelijk voor het aanvragen en afsluiten van de benodigde vergunningen en verzekeringen.
Deelnemers zijn verplicht tot het verschaffen van correcte, actuele en complete informatie bij de deelname aan een prijsvraag of winactie.
De persoonsgegevens die in het kader van winacties worden verkregen, worden alleen gebruikt door Bureau Marineterrein Amsterdam.

Interest in district heating or Industrial waste heat recovery projects

Hi all,
do you know about a district heating or Industrial waste heat recovery project, that might want to have some energetic help?

I just finished my interdisciplinary Bachelor of Business Administration and Engineering with the focus on energy technology and quality management at the faculty of resource management in Gottingen, Germany with my thesis about the use of industrial waste heat in the paper industry. In September I will start the master's programme Sustainable Development Track Energy and Materials at Utrecht University.

And starting from right now I would be available to support your project!
I would love to learn more about how industrial waste heat recovery projects are realized.

Kind regards,
Leila
