Your Engineering Inspiration for Tuesday 07 July 2020

Although much in the way of research and education has been put on hold due to the ongoing lockdown, there are a number of competitions open for entrants in science and engineering. Here are a few picks:
  • Health Security & Pandemics - How can communities around the world prepare for, detect, and respond to emerging pandemics and health security threats?
  • Alaska 2 Image Steganalysis - A challenge based on detecting secret data hidden within digital images.
  • E&T Innovation Awards 2020 - For standout people, projects, and organisations in engineering and technology (with awards available across 16 categories).
Competitions relevant for you will be delivered along with the rest of your tailored content (depending on your preferences). Alternatively, you can follow our Competition Twitter to be updated on competitions in all areas.

Very best,

An unstable massive star has suddenly vanished from view, and astronomers aren’t sure if it collapsed into a black hole or is playing peek-a-boo behind galactic dust. The star was too far away to spot on its own, but it...
As researchers worldwide work toward a potential quantum internet, a major roadblock remains: How to build a device called a quantum repeater. Advances in quantum information science have brought on the possibility of a quantum internet—networks that carry information via...
In a world’s first, researchers in France and the U.S. have performed a pioneering experiment demonstrating “hybrid” quantum networking. The approach, which unites two distinct methods of encoding information in particles of light called photons, could eventually allow for more...
Anytime astronomers figure out a new way of looking for magnetic fields in ever more remote regions of the cosmos, inexplicably, they find them. These force fields — the same entities that emanate from fridge magnets — surround Earth, the...
