The future of Science

The scientific world is changing; from how we publish to how we find a job, from international colleagues to close competitors. PhDs are also part of this change. This year, P-NUT, the PhD-Network of the University of Twente,  is guiding you through it at the PhD day 2018 on November 15th with the theme “The Future of Science”.

4TU.ResearchData publishes NetCDF report

Today, 4TU.ResearchData has published the completed version of its report on the use of the NetCDF format.  NetCDF is a numeric format used within the climate and atmospheric sciences and oceanography, and comprises over 90% (in terms of both size and DOIs) of the data held in 4TU.RD's archive.

No power for more than 48 hours, then what?

It sounds like a worst-case scenario: a storm has left the power out for more than 48 hours. The water in your street starts to rise, but the pumping stations are digitally controlled and run on electricity. The supermarkets can no longer order stock and their customers can no longer pay by card. The phones aren’t working and neither is the refrigerator...

Annual report 2017 online

The ever increasing number of students, the urgent shortage of engineers on the labor market and the run-up to a new program of activities; these are some of the topics that are covered in the 2017 Annual Report published by the 4TU.Federation.

4TU.Federation investing in high tech for a sustainable future

The 4TU.Federation has awarded a total of 22 million euros to five proposals within the framework of the call ‘High Tech for a Sustainable Future’, thus giving a strong impetus to research into sustainable technology.  In doing so, the Netherlands’ four universities of technology (TU Delft, TU Eindhoven, University of Twente, Wageningen University), are taking the lead in making a significant impact on social challenges in the long term.

'We need smart combinations for next generation photonics'
Photonics and radio signals join forces for high-speed mobile data communication, like in 5G communications. At the same time, the applications of ‘integrated microwave photonics’ go way beyond telecom. This progress often comes from directions you would not expect in the first place. University of Twente researcher David Marpaung (MESA+ Insitute), for example, works on a combination of light and sound waves, enabling him to design high-quality filters. In a review paper in Nature Photonics, he gives a vision on the next phase of photonic chips, for example in brain-inspired, ‘neuromorphic’ optical computing.
