This is the second time Kent has celebrated success in the EUROPRIX TTA, with former student Liz Valentine winning the EUROPRIX Multimedia Top Talent Thesis Award in 2004.
The EUROPRIX TTA is Europe’s largest competition for students and young professionals who work on innovative projects in the field of e-contents and design. The Quality Seal award recognises outstanding innovation and creativity in multimedia production and is a recognition of the best in multimedia projects, both student and professional, across Europe. It is also awarded to projects which clearly show innovative features and creative ingenuity.
Liz Canning won her Quality Seal award for Confused Zoo, an innovative multimedia application aimed at stage 2 pupils which raises awareness of endangered species in an engaging and entertaining manner, while Paul Turner won his for Creative Toolbox, an online design resource for creative individuals in all areas of design, from 2D and print, to web and new media, to 3D and animation. The Toolbox provides easy access to articles, tutorials, reviews, news, resources and support on relevant topics. It includes a large amount of interactivity, with users having the ability to store content from the site within their own personal toolbox.
Ania Bobrowicz, Lecturer in Multimedia Technology & Design, said: ‘We are absolutely delighted that Liz and Paul have won such a prestigious award, with Liz’s Confused Zoo and Paul’s Creative Toolbox also ranked in the top 10 percent of all EUROPRIX entries this year. Both projects are very good examples of the creative use of technology and innovation stemming from our course.’
An extremely popular and successful course, the BSc in Multimedia Technology & Design at the University of Kent provides a multidisciplinary education for students who seek professional careers in the field of multimedia technology and design. Taught by a team of experts in design, animation, film-making, photography, web technology and programming, graduates are well-equipped to enter such fields as multimedia authoring, web development, web mastering, television, film, electronic games, mobile communications, electronic commerce, internet publishing, computer programming and network management.
Alternatively, they may undertake postgraduate study in courses such as Kent’s MSc in Computer Animation.

The Institute of Semiconductor Technology and the Institute of Physical and Theoretical Chemistry, both members of the Laboratory for Emerging Nanometrology (LENA), at Technische Universität Braunschweig are partners in a new European research project entitled ChipScope, which aims to develop a completely new and extremely small optical microscope capable of observing the interior of living cells in real time. A consortium of 7 partners from 5 countries will tackle this issue with very ambitious objectives during a four-year research program.
To demonstrate the usefulness of this new scientific tool, at the end of the project the developed chip-sized microscope will be used to observe in real-time...
Astronomers from Bonn and Tautenburg in Thuringia (Germany) used the 100-m radio telescope at Effelsberg to observe several galaxy clusters. At the edges of these large accumulations of dark matter, stellar systems (galaxies), hot gas, and charged particles, they found magnetic fields that are exceptionally ordered over distances of many million light years. This makes them the most extended magnetic fields in the universe known so far.
The results will be published on March 22 in the journal „Astronomy & Astrophysics“.
Galaxy clusters are the largest gravitationally bound structures in the universe. With a typical extent of about 10 million light years, i.e. 100 times the...
Researchers at the Goethe University Frankfurt, together with partners from the University of Tübingen in Germany and Queen Mary University as well as Francis Crick Institute from London (UK) have developed a novel technology to decipher the secret ubiquitin code.
Ubiquitin is a small protein that can be linked to other cellular proteins, thereby controlling and modulating their functions. The attachment occurs in many...

Silicon nanosheets are thin, two-dimensional layers with exceptional optoelectronic properties very similar to those of graphene. Albeit, the nanosheets are less stable. Now researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have, for the first time ever, produced a composite material combining silicon nanosheets and a polymer that is both UV-resistant and easy to process. This brings the scientists a significant step closer to industrial applications like flexible displays and photosensors.
