10 Jan 2017 - UT developing portable device for early diabetes detection
Researchers at the University of Twente, in cooperation with commercial parties, are developing a portable device for detecting type 1 or type 2 diabetes at an early stage. The STW Technology Foundation is funding a research proposal submitted by Sonia García Blanco of UT’s MESA+ institute. The ultimate aim of the project is to develop a prototype of the device.
6 Dec 2016 - University of Twente researchers able to study individual defects in transistors
Scientists from the University of Twente’s MESA+ research institute have developed a method for studying individual defects in transistors. All computer chips, which are each made up of huge numbers of transistors, contain millions of minor ‘flaws’.
5 Dec 2016 - Perfect crystals from 'flying' drops
Crystals that don’t experience mechanical stress during growth, will be of superior quality. Levitate the liquid metal, is the idea behind the new project ‘Perfecting metal crystals’, led by the University of Twente.
16 Nov 2016 - UT in five out of six 'Perspectief' projects
Cartilage repair, energy efficient Internet of Things, new ways of controlling light, better flood protection and a brain prosthesis that can give sight to the blind.
9 Nov 2016 - New nanosensors for the detection of TNT
A new type of sensor has the potential to replace sniffer dogs when it comes to detecting explosives such as TNT. This week, researchers from a number of institutions including TU Delft and the University of Twente are publishing an article about this subject in the American Chemical Society's journal Nano Letters.

20 Oct 2016 - Talking speckles
The amount of light, passing through an opaque layer, can be enhanced using smart techniques. At the same time, the amount of reflected light diminishes, researchers of the University of Twente now show. It’s as if light speckles have a conversation of their own.
12 Oct 2016 - Second call for proposals Living Smart Campus
This week the Executive Board announces the opening of its 2nd Call for Proposals for Living Smart Campus projects.
8 Oct 2016 - Nobel Prize for honorary doctor Fraser Stoddart
Sir James Fraser Stoddart, honorary doctor of the University of Twente, has been awarded the Nobel Prize for Chemistry together with Dutchman Ben Feringa and Frenchman Jean-Pierre Sauvage for their research on molecular motors.
4 Oct 2016 - Fast chip detects effects of poison
The effect that toxic substances have on, for example, hemoglobin in blood, can now be tested in a fast way using a new lab-on-a-chip. UT scientist Floris van den Brink developed a fast and efficient mixer for this.
