Two lectures by Dutch scientists at Royal Institution this October

Two Dutch scientists will take the stage at the Royal Institution's world famous theatre to explore the latest amazing science and the way in which it shapes our lives. On Tuesday 22 October Professor Dave Blank, Chief Scientific Ambassador at University of Twente, will talk about "minuscule laboratories that can fit on a postage stamp" and other fascinating nanotechnology developments. A week later, on Wednesday 30 October, Eline van der Kruk, Postdoctoral Research Fellow at TU Delft, takes the audience on a journey to the world of Biomechanics, "a place where computer simulations and smart sensors are being developed to push the boundaries of human movement".
