We are a student team from the University of Twente, located in Enschede, the Netherlands. Through participating in this competition we aim to deliver advanced, sustainable technological solutions with high societal value. Our goal is to produce biosensors which focus on high performance as well as the users’ needs. We choose to participate in this competition because we are competitive, ambitious students who want to improve the quality of life by applying theoretical knowledge to real world problems. The strength of our team lies in our interdisciplinarity, diversity and entrepreneurial spirit.
Our goal is to produce a feasible Influenza A biosensor that is able to distinguish a
target molecule, tuning it to the users needs and offering a good value proposition for
business. Especially in these times where we are living in a pandemic which is
sometimes influenced or mistaken by the flu, we believe it is important to have an easy
and fast way of diagnosis. We believe participation will let us acquire wisdom and
experience, and teaches us meaningful lessons about ourselves and our capabilities.
Finally, participating gives us the opportunity to meet and collaborate with interesting
and experienced people.
