The sensor register: more insight into data collected about you

The municipality of Eindhoven is setting up a sensor register of all sensors in the city. The first part of the pilot is in full swing and will be extended this autumn. The main goal of the municipality is to make the data collection more transparent and more interactive. When you walk, cycle or drive through the city, your behaviour is measured by different sensors anyway. In Eindhoven, for example, there are sensors that measure traffic flows, but you can also find cameras, human counters and aggression meters.

Chinese regulator blocks acquisition of NXP by Qualcomm

The trade war between the United States and China has caused another victim: without the needed approval of the Chines regulator, Qualcomm cannot continue to acquire NXP. Today, the deadline for the Chinese regulator to give its approval has passed. All other supervisors were in agreement with the takeover. A bright spot for NXP is that Qualcomm has to pay a break-up fee of two billion dollars directly to NXP. In this way, Qualcomm compensates part of the damage for the energy that NXP put into the takeover. China has not given any reason for the lack of approval,...

EuroTech Universities ask for more EU funding for Research & Innovation

To successfully translate Europe’s technology and science into innovations with societal impact, much more money is needed than the 100 billion the European Commission has now proposed in the Horizon Europe programme. EuroTech Universities, a collaboration between the Technological universities of Munich, Eindhoven, Lausanne, Paris, and Copenhagen, has composed a declaration in which it explains why “at least €120 billion, or even €160 billion” is needed. “The proposed budget increase for R&I to €100 billion in the Multiannual Financial Framework for 2021-2027 is highly welcomed, but not ambitious enough to deliver the programme’s objectives of providing a major impetus...
