Your Engineering Inspiration for Tuesday 04 August 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,

In the early 1800s, William Rowan Hamilton discovered a new kind of geometric space with nearly magical properties. It encoded motion and mathematics into a single, glinting geometric object. This phenomenon birthed a field called symplectic geometry. Over the last...
As the world waits eagerly for a Covid-19 vaccine, several candidates are starting to be put through their paces in clinical trials. More than 100 vaccine candidates are being developed by teams around the world, with more than 20 now...
Electronic textiles that communicate, sense, or power other devices promise a new era of smart wearable technology. But current e-textiles rely heavily on metals such as gold, silver, and copper, making disposal or recycling difficult. Using nanomaterials such as carbon...
Balloon shaping isn’t just for kids anymore. A team of researchers from the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) has designed materials that can control and mold a balloon into pre-programmed shapes. The system uses...
Researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have improved the technique of frontal polymerization, where a small amount of heat triggers a moving reaction wave that produces a polymeric material. Their new method allows the creation of a wider...
