Will consumers accept healthier meat products?

It is possible to produce healthier alternatives to the processed meat products, which are in high demand in Denmark as well as in the rest of Europe, but how do consumers respond to the different options, and which ones do they prefer? In a new project funded by the European Innovation and Technology (EIT) Food, researchers from the MAPP Centre…

Single-celled algae are far more complex than previously assumed

Single-celled algae generate approximately 50% of the world's oxygen production. Despite the huge prevalence of these algae and in the world's oceans, knowledge about their life cycle is often rather sparse. However, researchers have now shown that the reproductive capacity of single-celled algae depends on their growth conditions, and that the…

Glacier virus provides insight into evolution's arms race between viruses and organisms

An international research team has looked at life on the surfaces of glaciers. Their work may turn out to challenge our previous understanding about the evolutionary arms race between viruses and their host organisms. The study has just been published in Nature Communications.

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.

Wednesday 26 August 2020 was the first day for 1,131 new students at Technical Sciences. Photo: Christina Troelsen 
The new students were welcomed by student advisers and shown around the premises. These are engineering students at Navitas. Photo: Christina Troelsen

Welcome to new students

This year, Technical Sciences welcomes 1,131 new students on the engineering degree programmes and agrobiology. Due to corona, orientation days are a little different than usual, and yet still the same.

Fast & furious: Autonomous drone racing raises the bar for artificial intelligence

Today, drones can autonomously carry out various tasks with zero or minimum involvement by human operators. However, they need to fly as slow as possible to sense their environment and plan future actions. But what if drones need to fly fast like in a manual drone race where speed, agility, and performance are paramount? A team of researchers from…
