ETRO goes TADA 21.09.2019

TAwhat? TADA stands for ‘Toekomst Atelier del Avenir’: an atelier for the future students of our society. In particular Brussels children age 10 to 14 from the more difficult neighborhoods who don’t always get all chances to become successful later in life. TADA wants to motivate these children early and make them enthusiast for several domains by workshops on Saturdays. The starting topic of this academic year is ICT: hardware and technology of the future. Of course ETRO was more than happy to get involved and show what we are doing! Deconstructing computers to see the inner hardware, showing what AR and VR stands for and measuring heart rate and muscle activity. Hopefully we can intrigue our little students and awake some next generation engineers.

The camera that detects the invisible, Le Soir, 4/8/2019 12.08.2019

An ETRO team, under the lead of Hans Ingelberts and Maarten Kuijk, is developing a fluorescence camera that can detect contours of tumors, nerves and blood vessels to help surgeons. This completely new and revolutionary technology would be available in 2025 on the market. It should allow surgeons to locate and remove very precisely cancerous tissue, without touching the healthy parts. The camera, coupled to a laser makes the colors, currently invisible, visible in real time. The camera would be a great help for medical teams, also closely involved in the current research, and can safe many lives!
