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.

Working on the next generation of batteries in the new battery lab
On 6 April, a new laboratory was opened at the Reactor Institute Delft (RID): the Battery Lab of Radiation, Science & Technology. This unique lab is an advanced facility for researching and testing current and future battery systems and related electrochemical devices. In the lab, TU Delft scientists Erik Kelder and Marnix Wagemaker and their research teams will work on the next generation of batteries: from cheap, static renewable energy storage to high energy density batteries for electric...

UT research increases effectivity of condensation through electrowetting
Researchers of the department of Physics of Complex Fluids of the University of Twente’s MESA+ institute have succeeded in increasing the effectivity of condensation through gravity-driven electrowetting. “We have been able to increase condensation by fifty per cent, with room for further increase”, researchers say. Higher efficiency can be in particular interesting for heat transfer and fog harvesting – fetching water from the atmosphere.
