Communication Prize 2017 awarded to Aarhus researcher

Have you ever thought that the ground beneath you is moving? No? You are probably not the only one, but it actually does, and this is a headache for engineers. However, a new research study will put this right.

The awards have motivated Jingbo Li to continue studying and become more specialised in a field that has great prospects. 
Jingbo Li is shown here with Rich Barton, chair of the Processing Section at AOCS, which issued one of the three honorary awards.

New business collaboration will provide more on-site research

Aarhus University is taking part in a new nationwide project that will strengthen small and medium-sized enterprises in the wind industry.

A strong electricity grid can distribute surplus wind and solar energy by 2050. In order to succeed, the grid must be three times stronger than it is in Europe at present. This will provide an opportunity to divide approximately 40 per cent of the surplus production. The rest can be used for local heating and transport. The interaction between local utilisation and the transmission of renewable energy is one of the project’s core themes.
