16 Apr 2015 - Role of forensic investigator changing fast
In the past few years, the interest in biometric techniques has increased exponentially. Biometrics is an important field of study in forensic science. Distinguishing human characteristics such as fingerprints, facial features, speech and DNA are used in the investigation and solving of serious crimes, among other things. The UT is the only academic institution in the Netherlands that conducts structural research into forensic biometrics. For the Netherlands Forensic Institute (NFI), the University of Twente is the connection to the academic world in this field. This collaboration is strengthened and expanded upon with the appointment of Didier Meuwly, NFI principal scientist, as Professor of Forensic Biometrics. On Thursday, 16 April he will be holding his inaugural lecture.

10 Apr 2015 - UT researchers test power network with pizza ovens
How much load can the electricity network really take? That was the key question during a special test in Lochem last week, in which researchers from the University of Twente participated. Twenty residents were assigned the task to bake a pizza in their electric oven, while the electric car was charging in the driveway. The network became overloaded after an hour and there was a power outage in part of the network.
