New professor on the data surge: It will only get worse

Daniel Lucani Rötter is a new professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Aarhus University. He conducts research into how we can solve some of the internet's biggest Gordian knots.

In a new project, researchers aim to develop technology to enable self-driving cars to share data. This will increase safety on the roads (Photo: Colourbox).
"Self-driving cars must be able to handle situations that only rarely occur in real life. This places considerable demands on artificial intelligence and software development," says Lukas Esterle, assistant professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Aarhus University.

Self-driving cars must be able to communicate with each other

Cars must be able to share knowledge about what is happening on the roads and warn each other about dangerous situations. This will improve road safety in a future with autonomous vehicles, and Independent Research Fund Denmark is investing in technology development.

New researcher wants to develop cancer medicine in Denmark. She has a unique idea

Lili Zhang wants to use her knowledge about mechanical engineering to develop new types of cancer medicine. The idea is new, the approach is innovative and highly interdisciplinary, and just thinking about the potential clinical impact is enough to make you dizzy.

Due to Corona, a second TECH tent will be opening at Bryggen in the middle of Copenhagen this year, where, in collaboration with the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), the University of Southern Denmark (SDU), Aalborg University (AAU), the Danish Society of Engineers (IDA) and Engineer the Future, AU Engineering will be debating technology.

Denmark’s Political Festival (Folkemødet) 2021: TECH tents to open in both Allinge and Copenhagen

What will be the role of universities in the green transition? Is 'Denmark as a test country' an opportunity or a constraint? And can we increase the supply of highly qualified labour by allowing older people to remain active on the labour market for longer? These are some of the questions on the agenda in the TECH tents at this year's Political…

"One of the solutions to global climate problems is to increase the share of renewable energy, and the way to do this is by making sure that we can store the energy," says Postdoc Behzad Partoon, who came to Aarhus University to do research into Power-to-X tech. Photo: Lars Kruse / AU Foto.

Working for the total green transition of society

For nine years, Behzad Partoon has researched CO2 capture technology at University Technologi Petronas in Malaysia. Now he is looking into what we can do with the CO2 once we have captured it. That was actually the main reason why he came to Aarhus University.

Danish invention preserves muscle mass in Covid patients

Engineering researchers from Aarhus University have developed electronic support stockings and tested them on bed-ridden Covid patients at Copenhagen University Hospitals, Bispebjerg and Herlev. The experiments show that the stockings counteract a significant loss of muscle mass.

Professor about UN energy summit: “This could be pivotal to the global green transition”

In September, the UN General Assembly will host a high-level dialogue on energy. Aarhus University will participate in efforts to identify green transition strategies.

"After we harvest the grass and extract the protein for animal feed, we can refine and pulp the grass fibres for cellulose, from which we can produce packaging. In this way, we can use and up-value a side stream from protein production," says Assistant Professor Morten Ambye-Jensen from the Department of Biological and Chemical Engineering at Aarhus University.

Grass replaces plastic in take-away food packaging

Soon, packaging for take-away foods might be completely based on local, sustainable materials instead of fossil-based products. In a new research project, a packaging solution based on upcycled grass fibres is being developed.

"The project is the culmination of my more than 10 years of research into the subject, and I hope to be able to help deliver durable and natural microbial solutions to make food safer in the future," says Associate Professor Clarissa Schwab. Photo: Ida Jensen, AU Foto.

New research will unveil the future for natural preservation of food products

With a grant of DKK 10 million from the Novo Nordisk Foundation, researchers from Aarhus University are aiming to find out how best to use naturally occurring compounds to preserve food.

"This is so far a totally unexplored area," says Assistant Professor Shweta Agarwala, who's heading the project. Photo: Lars Kruse, AU Foto.

Soluble, printable sensor to measure pressure inside the body

With a grant from Independent Research Fund Denmark of DKK 2 million, a team of researchers from Aarhus University hopes to develop a sensor made of novel conductive materials that can be implanted in the body, accurately measure the pressure of the selected organs, and then dissolve when it has finished its task.
