The University of Twente is hosting an online event dedicated to Earth Observation for Ukraine (EO4UA) tomorrow. This initiative, which aims to support authorities in assessing war-related environmental losses, is co-run by UT alumnus Jędrzej Bojanowski. ‘We hope to include the UT and local expertise in the project.’
Students or researchers? PhD and EngD candidates fall into a category of their own. What is it like to navigate the sometimes lonely road towards a doctoral degree? In this monthly series, we put young academics of the University of Twente in the limelight. This episode gives the stage to Anurag Kulshrestha from the department of Earth Observation Science.
UT project SPACE4ALL has received a grant of 675.000 euros from the NWO Open Competition Domain Science-M programme. The research, focused on climate vulnerability of slums, is based on working with local communities. ‘We will collect data with citizens, but we will also give back to the people. Our plan is to co-develop an app that the locals can use.’
