A successful green transition demands a new food systems approach

We need to move beyond simple linear cause-effect relations of food production and consumption and take a more holistic view, a so-called food systems approach, for the green transition to be successful. This was the common denominator at the first CiFOOD Conference at Aarhus University, which took place online in the beginning of February.

All information about the construction and all its phases are to be included in the digital twin, giving full situational awareness to management at all times. This provides researchers the opportunity to model the phases of construction in extreme detail very early in the project, where i.a. hazards and risks can be detected and reacted upon proactively.

Research infrastructure pool designates two recipients from the faculty

Two research projects at the Faculty of Technical Sciences, have received a total of DKK 28.9 million for research equipment and facilities to support Danish work on green development.

When the spring sets in in the Arctic, the metre-thick sea ice begins to melt. Melt ponds on the surface of the sea ice bring so much sunlight into the underlying seawater that the mixotrophic plankton algae start to grow dramatically. During an approx. 9-day period, the plankton can produce up to half of the total annual pelagic production in the high-Arctic fjord, Young Sound, in northeast Greenland. Several mixotrophic algae species are toxic. (Photo: Lars Chresten Lund Hansen and Dorte H. Søgaard)

Potentially toxic plankton algae may play a crucial role in the future Arctic

As the sea ice shrinks in the Arctic, the plankton community that produces food for the entire marine food chain is changing. New research shows that a potentially toxic species of plankton algae that lives both by doing photosynthesis and absorbing food may become an important player in the Arctic Ocean as the future sea ice becomes thinner and…

Almost a third of Danes have cut down on the meat in their diets

A new study from Aarhus University shows that almost a third of the Danes have reduced or stopped their meat consumption. Among these are, in particular, people with higher education, people in larger cities, women and young people.
