Presentation 2012 winners Green Mind Award

18 november 2013

On 14 November 2013, Tuan Anh Nguyen and Faris Nizamic, both PhD students from the Distributed Systems research group at the Johann Bernoulli Institute for Mathematics and Computer Science, presented the results of their price winning-project ‘Bernoulliborg: the building of Sustainability’ to the jury of the Green Mind Award.

In line with its focus areas Energy, Healthy Ageing and Sustainable Society, the University or Groningen initiated the Green Mind Award in 2012. Staff and students were challenged to submit ideas that would significantly improve sustainability performance within the University’s business operations or buildings. Out of a total of 62 high-quality entries, the jury last year awarded the first price to Tuan Anh and Faris.

Through efficiency and smart innovations, their plan provided for an estimated 45% reduction in water usage, nearly 8% savings on energy and a mere 20% waste reduction for the Bernoulliborg and its 850 daily occupants. You can check out their project, the courses of action and the methods used to achieve these results on a special videoTuan Anh and Faris made.

Next to Tuan Ahn and Faris, also Maria Antoinetta Loi, professor of Photophysics and Optoelectronics at the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials, presented her ‘Solar Umbrella’s’ project to the jury of the Green Mind Award.
