No more soporific lectures
In a unique experiment, researchers at the University of Twente conducted brain measurements on 20 students at the same time. During a one-hour lecture that alternated between passive and interactive, the researchers wanted to learn more about changes in students' concentration during lectures. This could lead to wearable technology that tells the lecturer that students' attention is waning.

Unique permanent coastal observation detects minimal changes
A team of researchers from TU Delft has succeeded in long-term mapping of beach topography to within a few centimetres. The unique dataset provides insights into coastal changes for every hour, for three years. This data is important for dune maintenance and to keep the hinterland well protected. The methodology is also being used to monitor other coastlines and even glaciers.

Optimisation of hard-soft material interfaces: A 3D printed imitation of bone-tendon connections
Most people can relate to having a laptop charger break right where the flexible cable meets the solid adapter. This is just one example of how difficult it is to effectively interface hard and soft materials. Using a unique 3D printing process, TU Delft researchers produced hybrid multi-material interfaces that reached a remarkable closeness to nature's design of bone-tendon connections.

Pioneering under polar ice near Antarctica - essential research for future Earth
Pioneering under polar ice near Antarctica - essential research for future Earth
How will the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) behave as our Earth continues to warm? That is what a large international team of scientists, including Utrecht-based earth scientist Francesca Sangiorgi , will investigate in the SWAIS2C project. This fall, the first cores will be drilled in the country under the WAIS.

New analytical framework identifies inconsistencies in technology legislation
Since new technologies often develop very quickly, it is difficult for legislation to keep up. This can result in a mismatch, whereby the use and ramifications of a new technology are not sufficiently covered by existing regulatory framework, for instance, in data protection legislation. PhD researcher Mara Paun of Tilburg Law School has developed an analytical framework to identify and address these mismatches.
