8 May 2017 - Major grant for 'Organ-on-a-chip' research Creating ‘organ-on-a-chip’ systems will be a decisive step toward personalized health care. Five partners including the University of Twente receive a prestigious ‘Zwaartekracht’ grant for this, of 19 million euros. 21 Apr 2017 - Julius Vancso appointed Consulting Professor at Donghua University UT Professor Julius Vancso has been appointed as Consulting Professor at Donghua University in Shanghai. He recently gave his inaugural lecture, entitled ‘Polymer-surface interactions from the molecular perspective by AFM force spectroscopy’. 18 Apr 2017 - Detlef Lohse appointed Chair Professor in China UT Professor Detlef Lohse has been inaugurated as Chair Professor on Fluid Engineering at Tsinghua University in Beijing, China. 12 Apr 2017 - Eurekite wins the “Best Startup” prize of the nano2start contest at MECSPE 2017 Eurekite founded by researchers of MESA + Institute for Nanotechnology University of Twente in Enschede, The Netherlands. 

The Flexiramics® technology of Eurekite was awarded with the “Best Startup prize for the best industrial innovation in nanotechnology and new materials” at the MECSPE fair in Parma.
10 Apr 2017 - Effective chemical processes through refined nano structures Han Gardeniers (MESA+ Institute for nanotechnology) embraces the dream of a cleaner chemical industry. What can we do to ensure less waste and less energy consumption? 10 Apr 2017 - Second ERC Advanced Grant for Detlef Lohse Transferring a substance, solved in one fluid, to another fluid: this happens in nano droplets as well as in chemical reactors that are meters high. Prof Detlef Lohse (MESA+) wants to thoroughly understand this process.
