Henri Ahola (14) is an enthusiastic young researcher, who participated in the 2018 edition of the Jonk Fuerscher contest. He was awarded for his SISU-project, a system of sensors integrated in a shoe sole. Developed for patients in post-traumatic, surgical recovery, the system indicates the allowed pressure to avoid putting all the weight on a foot.

Serge Quazzotti, Director of IPIL and member of the jury of the Jonk Fuerscher contest, organized a visit of the Luxembourgish high-tech company IEE S.A., where Henri had the opportunity to present and discuss his project with Mr. Aloyse Schoos, Chief Technology Officer of IEE S.A., and research engineers. A valuable insight into cutting-edge sensing technologies developed since more than 20 years by IEE S.A. as well as the company’s research and development activities, provided the young scientist a lot of inspirations for his future projects.
