Today Dutchnews.nl and Radio 4 Brainport expanded their cooperation with the introduction of hourly headline news bulletins, which can be heard at about 30 minutes past the hour. This is the first in a number of enhancements Radio 4 Brainport has planned to provide its listeners with even better coverage of international, national and local news items. A more elaborate weather report is part of the effort as well.
“We are very happy to be able to provide our listeners with up to date news from the Netherlands, supplied by the capable staff of Dutchnews.nl ” according to Jean-Paul Linnartz, Radio 4 Brainport’s program director. “This in addition to the lively discussion of the week’s news from the Netherlands every Saturday morning at 11 in the Dutchnews.nl podcast”.

Our mediumwave signal on 747 was poor in the Northern part of Eindhoven. Reception is now greatly improved as Radio Nederwetten relays our program during the day. So try 747 or 828 to listen in your car. The antenna location in Nederwetten allows a much more effective radiation of the radio signal//.
Female Tech Heroes is a great initiative by HighTechXL and High Tech Campus Eindhoven. We are pleased to share the podcast series made by our reporter Erika Van der Merwe.
Scientific research that is being quoted over and over again? Prof. Bert Blocken’s insights on how win seconds in a cycling race, how to descent faster or on what position to take in a platoon have a profound impact of the big tours and races. Radio 4 Brainport visited this unique research facility at TU Eindhoven.

Forecasting the Air Quality in every City Street?
Predicting turbulent air flows is hard. Eindhoven University of Technology has a unique wind tunnel that can experimentally simulate air flows. Although these new aerodynamic insights in cycling sport have been covered widely in the media, the insights on wind forces, on the spread of pollution, such as particulate matter (fijnstof) are also of high societal relevance. Radio 4 Brainport asked Prof. Bert Blocken to elaborate on what we can learn from wind tunnel experiments.

For the first team this year the Solar Team will be able to build in a new solar racing car fully under their own control.
Solar Team Eindhoven has kicked off the production process for the fourth edition in its series of solar-powered family vehicles. A notable change since the project started seven years ago is that the entire creation process will take place in Eindhoven: most of the design is based at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) and the manufacturing will be on the Brainport Industries Campus (BIC). The current team, consisting of 26 students from the TU/e working full-time on the project, will compete in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge in Australia, on 13-20 October 2019.
“This time everything is coming together here in the Brainport region, with all of our partners. And, here at the BIC, we are working to develop as many partnerships as possible, to ensure that we make this ecosystem work”, says Evan Quadvlieg, Technical Acquisition Manager at Solar Team Eindhoven.

Does artificial intelligence solve problems? “Well, that depends whom you ask,” says data visualisation expert Prof Jack (Jarke) van Wijk, from Eindhoven University of Technology.
Data visualisation expert Jack van Wijk is at the forefront of several new developments in data sciences, which he oversees both as professor at the Technical University of Eindhoven, and as Director of the Data Science Centre Eindhoven. He was one of the speakers at the Holst Memorial Symposium 2018, where Radio4Brainport asked him about his views on the relative contributions of artificial intelligence versus data sciences. We began by asking him about the activities at the Data Science Centre.
