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.

Getting a smart tattoo without using any needle
A tattoo that is warning you for too many hours of sunlight exposure, or is alerting you for taking your medication? Next to their cosmetic role, tattoos could get new functionality using intelligent ink. That would require more precise and less invasive injection technique. Researchers of the University of Twente now develop a micro-jet injection technology that doesn’t use needles at all. Instead, an ultrafast liquid jet with the thickness of a human hair penetrates the skin. It isn’t painful and there is less waste. In there new publication in the Journal of Applied Physics, the scientists compare both the needle and the fluid jet approach.
