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,

Pitch during a Start-up Autobahn event by The City of Amsterdam, AMS Institute and Daimler on Data-driven Mobility Management!

The number of citizens, commuters and visitors is growing rapidly in Amsterdam, increasing also the number of movements. Mobility management is one of the effective solutions to keep and make cities like Amsterdam more accessible, livable, safe and sustainable. The digitization of mobility offers new opportunities for managing flows by means of data from assets, platforms and/or vehicles. Interaction between different key actors is a major factor for success (for example linking the traffic control center of the city and services and vehicles of mobility providers like Daimler).

That’s why the City of Amsterdam, together with AMS Institute and Daimler are organizing a Start-up Autobahn event. We challenge start-ups to find new tools/products/services to collaborate with us on data-driven mobility management.

We invite relevant start-ups to show their interest and send pitching material before 17 January. A selection of Start-ups will be invited to pitch on 5 march during the Start-up Autobahn event at AMS Institute at the Marineterrein in Amsterdam.

Wanted: Launching customer for AI SMART SURVEILLANCE

At, we make video surveillance smart by recognizing violence, real-time. When violence occurs under the eye of the camera, an alert to the surveillance staff is being sent, so they can act accordingly. In the contemporary camera surveillance environment, a LOT is being missed, which we counter by applying our smart deep-learning algorithm.

We have demonstrated the effectiveness of our solution during a pilot in Eindhoven (Living Lab Stratumseind). Currently, we are still monitoring that location, with great results. We also accurately detected several fights which were missed by the surveillance staff (!)

When implemented, fights can be deescalated in an early stage, and perhaps even prevented.

We are now searching for a customer (police/municipality/Living Lab/etc.) that implements our solution in the surveillance room. It is already market-ready and privacy-compliant. is a university spinoff (Utrecht University) with three co-founders and two employees.
