The 165th anniversary of Delft University of Technology (DUT) in 2007 was dedicated to Sustainability and Development. One of the major activities was that ten persons from DUT travelled to a project that it was involved in setting up. These persons had a critical look to the role of the engineer and how the project is situated under the local conditions. The travellers wrote reports on their journeys that form the focal point of the jubilee book. One academic visited AMRF and reported on her visit during a presentation given in a SPARKS colloquium on 4 March 2008.
