Eindhoven, 2019-12-03 – Today Dutchnews.nl and Radio 4 Brainport expanded their cooperation with the introduction of hourly headline news bulletins, which can be heard at about 30 minutes past the hour. This is the first in a number of enhancements Radio 4 Brainport has planned to provide its listeners with even better coverage of international, national and local news items. A more elaborate weather report is part of the effort as well.
“We are very happy to be able to provide our listeners with up to date news from the Netherlands, supplied by the capable staff of Dutchnews.nl ” according to Jean-Paul Linnartz, Radio 4 Brainport’s program director. “This in addition to the lively discussion of the week’s news from the Netherlands every Saturday morning at 11 in the Dutchnews.nl podcast”.
Once again you can join us today, Thursday October 24th, for our live program from the Dutch Design Week. This afternoon Jean-Paul Linnartz welcomes Maarten Steinbuch, Professor in Systems and Control, Carlo van de Weijer, head of the Strategic Area Smart Mobility, Vincent Müller, Professor Industrial Engineering & Innovation Sciences, and team Tech United, the world champions robot soccer from the Eindhoven University of Technology, to discuss Artificial Intelligence.
Come and see Radio 4 Brainport at work in Strijp-T building TQ6, at the Drivers of Change exhibition of the Eindhoven University of Technology, or listen between 16:00 and 17:00 to Radio 4 Brainport.
Guests of our moderator prof. Jean-Paul Linnartz were prof. Carlijn Bouten and PhD candidate Bart Tiemeijer from the dept. of Biomedical Engineering, and Guid Oei, part-time professor at TU/e and gynaecologist at Maxima Medisch Centrum. They discussed, among other things, how our scientists are planning to create the world’s first artificial womb for humans, how smart plastics can be shaped into living heart valves, and how to monitor vital signs in premature babies.
Great improvements are coming to Radio 4 Brainport in 2019 !
Since a couple of weeks you are already able to receive us better in the Brainport regio as our program is now also distributed by Radio Nederwetten on 828 kHz AM. This is a significant improvement, especially for listeners in the northern part of Eindhoven.
And later this summer we hope to improve the coverage of our own 747 kHz transmitter with similar results as we move it to a better transmission location – more about that later.
So it was also time to update our website, and include a latest news page, to bring you updates on our progress and when new podcasts are published.
