The urgency with which the world economy needs to be decarbonized could lead to the emergence of regions with the capacity to produce renewable feedstock such as biomass. The competitiveness of these regions could result from their ability to produce high value-added chemicals at the lowest cost. The biomass embodied in a chemical product could...

Network densification has emerged as a powerful paradigm to boost spectral efficiency and accommodate the continual rise in demand for wireless capacity. In dense cell deployments however, overlapping coverage areas may cause highly varying interference conditions among different cells. Moreover, denser networks experience more temporal load...

The right to privacy is enshrined in the European charter of fundamental rights. The right to data protection is a relatively novel right, also enshrined in the same European charter. While these rights seem to focus on a defensive and protective approach, they also give rise to a positive and constructive interpretation. The GDPR may act as...

Cooperative systems which rely on vehicle-to-infrastructure communications are designed to tackle important road transport issues, such as safety and pollution. Since the associated monetary commitment is substantial, a clear understanding of the appropriate business models and likely costs, impacts and benefits is necessary before investment...

In recent years, various field operational tests (FOTs) have been carried out in the EU to measure the real-world impacts of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS). A challenge arising from these FOTs is to scale up from the very localised effects measured in the tests to a much wider set of socio-economic impacts, for the purposes of policy...

Many of the Dutch movable hydraulic structures are exceeding lifetime expectancy based on the then-current standards and regulations. Also signs of ageing become apparent, regulations (e.g. about structural safety) get more and more strict and functional requirements have often increased over time due to climate change and socio-economic...

The core architecture of current mobile networks does not scale well to cope with future traffic demands owing to its highly centralized composition. Typically, it is believed that decentralization of the network architecture would be a sustainable approach to deal with ever growing amount of mobile data traffic. Nevertheless, the...

Objectives A novel triage approach to routine assessments was introduced to improve the efficiency of Preventive Child Healthcare (PCH): PCH assistants carried out pre-assessments of all children and sent the children with suspected health problems to follow-up assessments conducted by a physician or nurse. This two-step approach differed from...

Urban infrastructures are essential to the health, safety, security and economic well-being of citizens and organisations. Therefore, the managers of critical infrastructures (CI) and infrastructure systems in urban areas need to be constantly aware of and prepared for to any man-made and natural disasters. In this paper, we propose a structured...

Wear and tear, electrification and aging of (low voltage) distribution grids require maintenance in order to assure continuous provision of electricity. Situational awareness is required to find out when parts of the grid need maintenance and which parts should be prioritized. The paper proposes a conceptual value model which relates sensor data...

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) should be a key technology in order to achieve a decline in the CO2 emissions intensity of the power sector and other intensive industry, but this potential deployment could be restricted by cost issues as the International Energy Agency (IEA) in their last projections (World Energy Outlook 2013) has considered...

Background: Cost-effectiveness analyses provide insight in the use of lifestyle interventions. To evaluate the cost-effectiveness of a lifestyle intervention compared to usual care in people with Familial Hypercholesterolemia, 340 people with FH were randomized to the intervention or control group. LDL cholesterol, quality of life and costs were...

We present a framework to investigate new monitoring techniques for infrastructures and assess their potential value for the network management. This framework is based on a social cost benefit analysis tool that aims to (i) assist decision makers in selecting and developing cost-effective new monitoring techniques and (ii) provide managers with...

The use of spatial computable general equilibrium (SCGE) models for assessing the economic impacts of transport projects is one of the key items on the research agenda for project appraisal in the Netherlands. These models are particularly suitable for analysing indirect effects of transport projects through linkages between the transport sector...
