Delft is a city and municipality in South Holland in the Netherlands. On 30 April 2017, the municipality of Delft had 101,007 inhabitants. Many inhabitants of Delft have a higher education, while on the other hand there is a large number with a low Social Economic Status (and education background).TU Delft and the municipal government have recently agreed to work at improving relations between these extremes, and use the available knowledge and innovative power to benefit poorer inhabitants. The integration and participation of various ethnical groups in Delft society is an important goal for our organisation. As local government we believe that integration and participation need to take place in society itself, and cannot be designed by us. Therefore we challenge our professional partners, as well as our citizens, to take initiatives, and where necessary we facilitate their implementation.
