AU sends satellite into space: "The culmination of my boyhood dream"

On Tuesday evening at 7:38 Danish time, a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will shoot skywards and into space from Cape Canaveral in Florida. On board will be the Delphini-1 satellite that engineering student Kåre Jensen has helped to construct.

Environmental pioneer to strengthen AU research on green farming

He became a professor in 2005. He defended his doctoral dissertation in 2013. Now, Sven Gjedde Sommer has started on the next chapter in his quest for green livestock production in Denmark at the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University.

Mimicking nature to produce green chemicals using the power of light

Nine universities across Europe are working together to produce green, sustainable and biodegradable chemicals using light as the fuel and generating absolutely no waste at all.

"No one has ever looked more closely at why the straw stays in whatever orientation it is placed by bending its corrugated part," says Marcelo Dias, Assistant Professor at the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University. Photo: Jesper Bruun
Maybe the bendable straw has never really been given the credit it deserves. It certainly looks as though its flexible properties might have engineering applications. Photo: Jesper Bruun

The multi-stability of universal design

80 years ago, a screw and a piece of dental floss revolutionized an invention dating back more than 5,000 years. An international team of scientists and engineers are now taking this invention a step further.

Signal processing to improve remediation of oil-contaminated soil

By measuring the electrical conductivity of the soil, researchers from Aarhus University, in collaboration with Ejlskov A/S, are developing an inexpensive and accurate method of tackling oil pollution. The project is being supported with DKK 17 million from Innovation Fund Denmark's Grand Solutions.

AU researcher receives award for pioneering allergy research

Associate Professor Edzard Spillner from the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University, has received the Grethe Stampe Legat for work on new antibody-based treatments for allergy.

"This is an exciting project, as it is crucial that we make the digital infrastructure more energy efficient," says Danish Minister for Higher Education and Science, Tommy Ahlers. Photo: Colourbox.
"The project will also investigate and implement simple new energy-efficient and scalable end-to-end security schemes across the IoT infrastructure," says Associate Professor Martijn Heck from the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University. Photo: Lars Kruse, AU Foto.

DKK 100 million for faster, greener Internet

Internet traffic has risen a thousand-fold since 2000 and currently accounts for around 10 per cent of the world’s electricity consumption. This is a trend that is set to increase. There is therefore a great need for new infrastructure offering energy-efficient broadband solutions, and a new Grand Solutions project with funding from Innovation…

Sustainability on the curriculum for 370 pupils

Perhaps the Danish high-school students who know most about sustainability. At all events, 370 students from Aarhus Tech now know a little more after hearing about the latest knowledge and technology last Friday at a theme day at Aarhus University.
