Entered Amsterdam Science and Innovation Award 2017
A month ago, I received an e-mail about the Amsterdam Science and Innovation Award of which the grand finale is held at my university, the VU. It piqued my interest immediately. I decided to involve my sister, Viola, who is a talented industrial design engineer with a focus on user-centered design and a big interest in psychology. Together, we brainstormed about different applications of my specific research expertise on solving societal issues, and also about research ideas that could be incorporated in a commercial product. After a month of frequent meet-ups, we ran with the latest version of our idea and entered the competition. There was very little time for further fine-tuning, so we hope to have captured the gist of our (pretty cool) idea.
