Biography

Since 2011, Professor Elphi Nelissen (1959) has been Full Professor in Building Sustainability and Dean of the Department of the Built Environment at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). In her position as Dean, she holds final responsibility for the educational and research programs of the Department as well as for its management.

Next to her position at the university, Professor Nelissen is chairwoman of the Socio-Economic Council of the Province of Brabant (SER-B) and is member of the Advisory College of the Province (BrabantAdvies).

Elphi Nelissen established independent engineering agency Nelissen BV in 1991, with expertise in the field of building physics, building acoustics and building services. Since, the agency belongs to the top of Dutch engineering agencies and has expanded to over 50 motivated and well trained employees.

She also holds several additional functions, such as chairwoman of the TU/e Smart Cities Program and member of the Board of SPARK Campus. In 2016, Elphi Nelissen was elected most influential woman of the Eindhoven/Brainport region.

Recently, Elphi Nelissen initiated the development of a true Smart District in the Brainport region, to be established ultimately in 2021. It will be a unique living lab, in which all new and smart technologies are to be integrated in a renewable, social and attractive living district. The Brainport Smart District gives the university the opportunity to develop and experiment with new building methods, energy generation and storage, mobility concepts and to perform research on safety and health related topics, in close cooperation with industry.
