Respira

Breath sensors for pre-symptomatic disease detection We are developing a non-invasive breath sensor for cows, for the early detection of illnesses well before observable symptoms. With automated and continuous monitoring, this would enable timely and precise feed adjustments by farmers to stop sickness progression. The technology is derived from extremely sensitive laser-based techniques enabling the […]

S2S-AI

Climate change is affecting extreme weather – we identify how and when society is at risk Seasonal to sub-seasonal (S2S) predictability could provide societies with valuable information on weather-related risk, allowing decision-makers to initiate early warning action plans and to optimize resource management. Using Artificial Intelligence (AI), we are developing a rigorous data-driven framework that […]

SALT

The starting point for better leadership Organizations invest a lot of time and money in recruiting, developing, and promoting the best managers. Key stakeholders understand the challenges faced by managers in different roles but often differ in their views on the leadership style best suited to face these challenges. SALT is a simple, efficient tool […]

SoundTomics

Three dimensional reconstructions of skeletal muscles

SPUN – Society for the Protection of Underground Networks

We protect unique underground ecosystems in the face of rapid environmental change Beneath our feet, fungi complex underground networks of that regulate the earth’s climate and ecosystems. These hidden networks power the world’s soil, and act as a huge sink for atmospheric carbon. But these biomes are being rapidly destroyed: fires, pollutions, deforestation are killing […]

Stichting voor Chromatografie thuis

Chromatography has proven to be a powerful technology for the separation of a mixture to perform quantitative analyses. The Foundation for Chromatography at home aims to promote and support relatively simple analysis at home, e.g. by measuring urinary components after eating certain foods, such as olives. The Foundation will not provide a ready-to-use product, but […]

Strike-f(x)

The intelligent boxing bag for immediate, accurate, and reliable monitoring of impact force Strike-f(x) is an intelligent boxing bag for immediate, accurate, and reliable monitoring of impact force. Strike-f(x) is designed to give individuals total freedom of movement – to punch, kick, knee, tackle – and, yet, have accurate and reliable feedback about the force, […]

Virtual Human Rights Lawyer

Bringing technology and law together in order to make justice easier to access The Virtual Human Rights Lawyer (VHRL) is an easy-to-use tool offering chatbot technology for legal civil society organizations (CSOs). The VHRL helps to bridge the knowledge gap between these CSOs and often unaffordable international legal expertise by providing reliable information on international […]

Yamano Kiri

Reading the color code of molecules To analyse substances, we look at the “color” of the infrared light that is reflected from them. This is called the molecular spectrum. It gives a sort of fingerprint identification for that specific molecule. This fingerprint, especially of large molecules (f.e. biological molecules and special functions in those molecules) […]
