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.

You can’t just turn up the cooling, because while the sows need to keep cool, their new-born piglets need a warm climate in order to develop as well as possible. Photo: AU Foto.

New project to minimise heat stress in pigs

Heat stress in highly productive sows in subtropical and tropical regions is a major problem, and if the sows are not cooled down, the consequences can have major economic and animal welfare impacts. A new ventilation project will tackle this issue.

Experimental funding for bold new engineering projects

Can we use ancient paper techniques to create new materials and ultramodern technology that can help us discover nature's own antibiotics? Two new projects at the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University, which aim to accomplish exactly this, are among the projects being funded in a new programme under the Villum Fonden foundation.

Research project identifies huge productivity potential in construction

A major new study from the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University shows that only one-third of the working hours in construction are spent on value-adding work. This means that there are many opportunities for optimisation in most builders’ working day. However, it's not that builders aren’t working hard, say the researchers.

Engineering student develops bioreactor to grow heart valves from human cells

This could be the end artificial heart valves. That’s the goal of Aarhus University, and in a Master’s thesis project, Buster Skyum, an MSc in Engineering student from Department of Engineering, has helped the university take its first step towards growing biologically active heart valves made of human cells. Such valves will never need to be…
