How do we design reliable AI for marine robots?

Intelligent marine robots open up a wide range of possibilities in the vast unknown areas below sea level, covering more than 70 per cent of the surface of the Earth. However, we need reliable artificial intelligence if robots are to operate on their own. A new EU-funded project will address this problem.

New collaboration project will help companies in Ringkøbing-Skjern Municipality catch the digital transformation wave

A large-scale industrial and academic collaboration project between Ringkøbing-Skjern Municipality and Aarhus University is 'a huge opportunity', says the mayor of the municipality, who welcomes the new initiative.

Major grants to bold engineering projects

Nine researchers at Aarhus University have received foundation grants from the Villum Experiment Programme under the Villum Foundation for their daring and innovative projects. The Villum Experiment Programme donates money for ‘bold ideas for research’.

Engineers hope to use a statistical tool to reduce the use of toxic chemicals in the pharmaceuticals industry. The aim is to find alternative chemical compounds with a sustainable profile.

Engineers pave the way for more sustainable medicine

Using an advanced statistical tool, engineers can identify new chemicals to replace problematic substances in the pharmaceuticals industry. They have just completed their first scientific studies with blood pressure medicine, and the results are promising.

1,100 new engineering students have had their first day at school

There have never been as many new engineering students at Aarhus University. Around 1,100 new students started their orientation this week on either a BSc or BA in engineering degree programme at AU Engineering. This is an increase of 18 per cent on last year.

New invention measures glacier water in the Arctic Ocean

Engineers from Aarhus University have developed a device that makes it possible to collect water samples from the Arctic Ocean at depths of 300 metres. This will help climate researchers acquire new knowledge about how the ice in the northern hemisphere is melting and what happens when it mixes with the salty seawater

Associate Professor Qi Zhang is leading the group, which has developed a new way of compressing data. The new grant will provide a framework for an end-to-end solution that could have a major impact on the so-called data tsunami, caused by exponential growth in IoT devices.

Danish researchers invent a new way to compress data

A new project, supported by Independent Research Fund Denmark, will make it possible to read data directly from compressed IoT data. The project is being headed by researchers from Aarhus University and it is a collaboration with, among others, MIT and Boston University.

Aarhus University helping new biotech initiative in Kalundborg

Kalundborg is to be the focal point for the Biomanufacturing Project House (BPH), to attract engineering Master's students from Denmark and abroad and strengthen Kalundborg’s leading position in biotech. The board at the BPH includes Lars Ditlev Mørck Ottosen, head of department at Aarhus University.

Birgit Bonefeld researches into making sustainable clothes out of locally grown grass. That won't solve the fundamental challenge of pollution in the fashion industry though, she says. Photo: Ida Jensen, AU Foto.

She researches into making clothes out of grass

Birgit Bonefeld is one of Denmark's only researchers into sustainable textiles: a very important area in the green transition, and one which may also become an important part of agricultural conversion to grass production to reduce nutrient leaching and replace imports of soy protein.
