Privacy is becoming a business asset. A number of developments contribute to this repositioning of privacy. In the first place, the extreme growth in the creation of data in the past few years makes the protection of persons in relation to the processing of their data more relevant. Secondly, the advent of new services that are largerly based on...

In vitro air–liquid interface (ALI) cell culture models can potentially be used to assess inhalation toxicology endpoints and are usually considered, in terms of relevancy, between classic (i.e., submerged) in vitro models and animal-based models. In some situations that need to be clearly defined, ALI methods may represent a complement or an...

Wat is RESPONSE? Bij een incident met gevaarlijke stoffen heeft Response drie functies: 1. Berekenen van de bronlocatie van het incident, onder meer op basis van sensordata of klachten van omwonenden; 2. Berekenen van de mogelijke effecten van het incident met een gevaarlijke stof voor de omgeving; 3. Selecteren van informatie voor werknemers en...

We investigated the occurrence of metal-based nanoparticles in a natural system, the river Dommel in the Netherlands. The river itself is well-studied as far as hydrology and water quality is concerned, easily accessible and contains one major wastewater treatment plant discharging onto this river. We sampled water from various locations along...

Environmentally extended multiregional input-output (EE MRIO) tables have emerged as a key framework to provide a comprehensive description of the global economy and analyze its effects on the environment. Of the available EE MRIO databases, EXIOBASE stands out as a database compatible with the System of Environmental-Economic Accounting (SEEA)...

The EURODELTA-Trends multi-model chemistry-transport experiment has been designed to facilitate a better understanding of the evolution of air pollution and its drivers for the period 1990-2010 in Europe. The main objective of the experiment is to assess the efficiency of air pollutant emissions mitigation measures in improving regional-scale...

The Zero Accident Vision (ZAV) is a promising approach developed in industry, but not so much addressed by the safety science research community. In a discussion paper in Safety Science (2013) a call was made for more research in this area. Three years later is a good time to take status of developments in this field. A first set of empirical...

Quantitative Risk Analysis (QRA) is a standard and mandatory tool in some high-risk industries (such as the on-and offshore exploration and production and chemical industry). Presently, the human factor component is often estimated using expert opinions. In practice, experts may use heuristics such as assuming a failure probability of one in ten...

Stedelijke dynamiek, kansen voor duurzaamheid. De afgelopen decennia zijn steden en stedelijke agglomeraties sterk gegroeid. Niet alleen wereldwijd, maar ook in Nederland. Inmiddels woont 44 procent van onze bevolking in de stad, terwijl het stedelijk gebied slechts 13 procent beslaatvan de oppervlakte van Nederland. Volgens de prognoses van het...

Particulate matter exposure may cause adverse health effects. Although ultrafine particulate matter (UFP) is hypothesised to be particularly health relevant, the number of studies into personal UFP exposure is limited. Aim To increase insight where and when most UFP exposure occurs, in terms of exposure levels and peaks in microenvironments,...

Exposure to crystalline silica (quartz) has been implicated as a potential cause of the high lung cancer rates in the neighbouring counties of Xuanwei and Fuyuan, China, where the domestic combustion of locally sourced “smoky” coal (a bituminous coal) is responsible for some of the highest lung cancer rates in the nation, irrespective of gender...

Flexibly anticipating the future. Cities interact permanently with their environment. Both that environment and cities themselves are liable to change. This dynamic entails uncertainties, challenges, and tests of innovation that cities have to be able to adapt to. It means that cities have to be able to anticipate the events that will affect...

When infrastructures projects are evaluated, it is not only important to evaluate them with models that represent the average daily situation, but also to evaluate them in case of irregular situations like incidents. This becomes especially relevant when various project alternatives are expected to show significantly different scores in case of...

We describe the creation of the Global Multi-Region Input–Output (MRIO) Lab, which is a cloud-computing platform offering a collaborative research environment through which participants can use each other’s resources to assemble their own individual MRIO versions. The Global MRIO Lab’s main purpose is to harness and focus previously disparate...

The solute concentration in the subsoil beneath the root zone is an important parameter for leaching assessment. Drainage centrifugation is considered a simple and straightforward method of determining soil solution chemistry. Although several studies have been carried out to determine whether this method is robust, hardly any results are...

Steden zijn permanent in interactie met hun omgeving. Zowel die omgeving als de steden zelf zijn veranderlijk. Deze dynamiek brengt onzekerheden, uitdagingen en vernieuwingsopgaven met zich mee, waar een stad adaptief mee moet omgaan. Het gaat erom dat een stad kan inspelen op datgene wat op haar afkomt, en kan omgaan met verandering. Dit vergt...

Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) are of interest due to their antimicrobial activity and are seen as potential candidates to replace antibiotics in animal husbandry. A few studies have focused on this new application, but they lack any considerations about residual accumulation of AgNPs in edible animal tissues and animal products. In this research,...
