Solar Team Twente will start racing in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge this Sunday. Their solar car shows that it’s possible to build vehicles powered ‘by the sun’, but can the technology revolutionize transport? Monica Morales Masis, UT scientist and an expert on solar cells materials, explains why she believes that we will all be driving solar cars one day and what the drawbacks could be.
Two UT researchers have been awarded the ERC Starting Grant. David Fernandez Rivas received the maximum amount of € 1.5 million for his project focused on the development of needle-free injections. His fellow scientist Monica Morales Masis has been granted additional funding and obtained the total of € 1.75 million for her research aiming to create new materials.
