New Unifocus video's: Students design a smart bandage; Studying Multilingualism; The social impact of watching a dance performance

24 September 2014

The new Unifocus, the video magazine of the University of Groningen, is online. In this week's edition:

  • Students design a smart bandage. A team of University students will be participating in the international iGEM competition, where students attempt to build the best biological ‘machine’ using synthetic biology. This year’s team has designed a bandage that helps heal burn wounds and prevents infection.
  • Studying Multilingualism. The University of Groningen recently introduced a new international Master’s degree programme: Multilingualism. The programme focuses on studying multilingualism in all its aspects.
  • Social impact of watching a dance performance. Does a performance influence the behaviour of individual viewers, the relationships between them, and the creation of a ‘community’? A University research team (Social Psychology and Artificial Intelligence) studies this, together with choreographer collective Random Collision.

Each episode of the biweekly online video magazine Unifocus includes three items related to the University of Groningen, in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
Watch the complete latest episode of Unifocus.
