Aarhus University invites companies to a brainstorm on digitisation

Aarhus University would like to prepare Danish companies for a future with smart products when the Department of Computer Science and the Department of Engineering hold Brainnovation Day. The event is free and will be held on Thursday 19 January from 9.30 to 16.00. Eighty participants have already registered to attend.

“We can’t understand how valuable or vulnerable today’s species are without taking a look at the ‘ghosts’ of the species that died out before them,” says Matt Davis, who made the graphics shown here. (Click on the graphics for full size)

Skeletons from the Ice Age provide knowledge about endangered species

Although they have been extinct for more than 10,000 years, the woolly mammoth, giant beaver and giant sloth can nevertheless provide information about what happens to the ecosystems when the most distinctive species die out. This is shown in new research from Aarhus University.

Geoscience will pave the way for ‘green’ heat from the subsurface

The Danish subsurface contains enormous amounts of heat energy. Innovation Fund Denmark has granted DKK 17 million to a new project with the participation of researchers at the Department of Geoscience, which will pave the way for exploiting this resource on a large scale, and contribute to the green transformation of the Danish heat supply.

Survey of knowledge on how to combat microorganisms

A comprehensive knowledge of the synthesis of organisms and the utilisation of the compound PRPP may be useful in efforts to develop methods for combating microorganisms that can infect humans and other mammals. An international research team has now made a complete list of results in the field.

Researchers reveal the secret code language of bacteria

Antibiotic resistance in pathogenic bacteria is a growing global challenge. Danish researchers have now discovered that bacteria use a code language to avoid being controlled. Understanding this code language will be paramount to developing new antibiotics in the future.

Welcome to the antiworld!

For the first time in history, scientists have succeeded in illuminating antihydrogen and carrying out spectroscopic measurements of antimatter. These important results have been the ambition of antimatter physicists for many years, and a research team with Danish leadership has now succeeded. A major step has therefore been taken in revealing…

Danes use less energy on heating

With data from 28,000 single-family houses, researchers have analysed the historical development of our actual energy consumption for heating private houses. They can thereby document a clear effect of energy-saving requirements in the current building regulations.

New measurements will predict changes in the Greenlandic community

The Arctic region is currently experiencing temperatures that are far above normal. The sea ice is disappearing at an alarming rate and the heat is affecting the entire climate of Greenland and thereby living conditions in this enormous country. A new measuring programme will reveal the way in which many complex processes are interconnected and…
