Noldus Information Technology has joined a public-private partnership with the aim to develop innovative new technology for the measurement of visual product perception, choice and eating behavior. The FOCOM project, short for “Food Cognition Model systems”, bundles the scientific and technical expertise of three Dutch universities, four high-tech companies, a large food industry and two food research firms.
Noldus is proud to have installed a high-tech simulation room which facilitates unobtrusive observations of Nuclear Power Plant and Reactor Operations. The Center of Safe and Secure Nuclear Energy (CSSNE), which focuses on research and development (R&D) in nuclear energy and associated workforce development, now uses this simulation room to contribute to safety and security, especially when investigating next generation nuclear power plants. The Center for Advanced Engineering & Research (CAER) is home to CSSNE, all part of the Region 2000 initiative.
This year, The Society of Neuroscience was kind enough to bring Neuroscience 2011 to our back yard. Just 45 minutes from our US headquarters in Leesburg, Virginia and with the picturesque Washington Monuments as a backdrop, 30,000 Neuroscientists descended upon the DC convention center for this exciting 5 day scientific event featuring the newest breakthroughs and innovations in Neuroscience Research. For Noldus, this meant an opportunity to showcase our tools and solutions as well as participate in several scientific programs throughout the week.
Recently, Autism Speaks awarded nearly $1.8 Million in autism treatment study grants to outstanding autism-treatment research projects. The scientific panel reviewed 86 applications and awarded grants (8 out of 10) to pilot studies aimed at bringing new investigators into the autism field and jump-starting research on novel treatments.
Noldus Information Technology is helping to develop the CSI Lab
On 27th October, the CSI Lab will open. This is a training facility for crime scene investigators. The CSI Lab is unique in the international forensic world.
