Efficient Comfortable School Indoor Air Quality. Installations in buildings are responsible for around 35% of all energy consumption, approximately 20% of which is due to inefficient operations.
POWer FITTing optimizes the relationship between vitality and the (home) office environment through the combination of data acquisition, integration and application for the validation and acceleration of user-oriented solutions.
Human-centric lighting should benefit users, but the practicality of this is no clear-cut process. Light affects human health and wellbeing in many ways, and needs and preferences vary.
Without changes to healthcare, heart disease may overwhelm the system within 10 to 20 years. SoSTRAP aims to develop a solution: a data collection and diagnosis platform which supports behavioral changes in cardiac patients through social connectedness. This complements the NWO-funded project NWO-STRAP, which looks at AI techniques for the early prediction of heart failure deterioration. The joint aim of these projects is lower treatment costs for cardiac patients and improved cardiac care.
Early stage detection is critical to halting the rise in cardiovascular diseases. Within MEDICAID (Medtech solutions for Earlier DetectIon of CArdIovascular Disease), ten PhD students and one postdoc are therefore working on unobtrusive sensing, monitoring and data analysis for earlier recognition and improved treatment.
Advanced piezo-electric wafer stage
This project ‘Advanced piezo-electric wafer stage for next generation lithography and metrology application’ aims to demonstrate feasibility of an ultra-short stroke stage using light-weight and compact piezo-electric actuators instead of current electromagnetic actuators.
