Overview Amsterdam Science & Innovation Award 2014

In 2014 Giulia de Luca’s Re-scan Confocal Microscopy (RCM) method won the 9th edition of the Amsterdam Science & Innovation Award. RCM is a scan and re-scan method that achieves super-resolution, yielding even sharper images of living cells. The method consists of linking two optical scanners to a standard microscope.
Honourably mentioned was the ‘Indestructible bicycle tire’ developed by Supreme Dutch, a company headed by Kevin Kesteloo. Kesteloo, who is a student at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences (AUAS/HvA), developed a bicycle tire that lasts for years and can be mounted on all types of wheel rims.
In this booklet you can read some of the submitted ideas of the Amsterdam Science and Innovation Award 2014.
