Project Update: Data-driven shared decision making on cancer treatment for individual patients
In early November, we spoke to project leader Prof Emiel Krahmer and PhD candidate Saar Hommes from Tilburg University's Department of Communication & Cognition about this data2person project. Emiel is professor of Language, Cognition and Computation and focuses his research on gaining a better understanding of how people exchange information during communication, for example in a medical context. The current research has been running since 2018 and ends autumn 2023.

WheelPower: wheelchair sports and data science push it to the limit
The Netherlands won 59 medals and finished fifth in the medal standings at the 2021 Tokyo Paralympic Games. TeamNL athletes captured 25 gold, 17 silver and 17 bronze medals. To maintain and even strengthen this position in this rapidly professionalising field, more knowledge is needed on how to optimise the ability of athletes in wheelchairs to improve their competitive performance. This requires not only new knowledge based on objective measurement data from training, testing and competitions, but, in particular, direct feedback of the analysed data to athlete and coach to optimise training, wheelchair adjustment and competition performance.

Project Update: Inquiry into effectiveness and efficiency of self-monitoring based management of Multiple Sclerosis
In late September 2022 - in the middle of this project around digital self-monitoring - we spoke to Lotte Krabbenborg (Radboud University) and Sonja Cloosterman (MS sherpa, formerly Orikami). Lotte Krabbenborg is associate professor of Science in Society at Radboud University's Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences. She deals with the question under which conditions citizens can influence the creation, implementation and social embedding of new technological/scientific developments such as nanotechnology, biofuels and artificial intelligence.
