Yay! You can vote for me for the CreaTe/I-Tech teacher award (if you're a student and have a Google account...)
The high school children that are on strike for the climate now will be our future students. Let's give them the world -- and the campus -- they protested for.
Let's build, on campus, the state-of-the-art wind mills that use generators developed at the University of Twente. The superconductors developed by Marc Dhallé and colleagues replace the heavy magnets inside a generators of conventional wind mills. As a result, the weight and size of the new generator is significantly reduced while at the same time, it is capable of delivering the same output power. Another advantage is the minimal use of rare earth metals.
Let's put solar panels on every roof and turn everyday objects on campus into solar panels using luminescent solar concentrator (LSC) photovoltaic technologies that Angèle Reinders and colleagues experiment with. The typical material properties of LSCs -- low cost, colorful, bendable, and transparency -- offer a lot of design freedom.
Let's use the additional energy generated on campus to generate solar fuels. This involves the direct conversion of energy from sunlight into a usable fuel (in this case, hydrogen). Using only earth-abundant materials, Han Gardeniers, Jurriaan Huskens and colleagues developed the most efficient conversion method to date.

Just heard that Prof. Paul Gellings died last month. He was the chair of my PhD committee. I knew him as a wise man, with a positive view of life.

#2025 "Peer Review"
Your manuscript "Don't Pay $25 to Access Any of the Articles in this Journal: A Review of Preprint Repositories and Author Willingness to Email PDF Copies for Free" has also been rejected, but nice try.
@interactief time to promote this NPR podcast! https://www.npr.org/sections/money/2014/10/17/356944145/episode-576-when-women-stopped-coding
Just read I/O vivat. Really @interactief ? Not a single female candidate board member? What did you do to scare them all away?
@arjenpdevries @apriante heel begrijpelijk.
