DOB-Academy (De Oude Bibliotheek)

The conference will be held at the DOB-academy. The DOB-Academy is located in the former TU Delft Library, called De Oude Bibliotheek. De Oude Bibliotheek Academy, DOB-Academy sits in an impressive historic building, dating from 1915. With its typical old-Dutch elevation in neo-renaissance style, stately stairs and stained glass windows the building cannot be missed. For quite some older Delft- trained engineers the library will trigger many memories. Some may recall their favourite study spots for exam preparation, others the lectures in the adjacent wing which at the time was the Faculty of Civil Engineering. Recently, 100 years after its start as a prestigious TU Delft library, the building has found a second life: since 2015, the DOB-Academy uses the building as a prominent training and learning centre for the offshore energy industry and has revived its original function as an inspirational meeting place. A history of knowledge exchange will be continued.
