Danish Centre for Food and Agriculture (DCA): Study of five years' reports reveals unsatisfactory situation

A review of reports from the DCA over the past five years shows among other things that the role and contribution of external parties in collaboration have been inadequately declared in a number of the reports. Three reports have serious omissions. The researchers stand firm on their research. Full transparency for collaboration with industry is…

Aarhus Å seen from Europaplads looking towards the Magasin department store during Storm Bodil in December 2013. Aarhus City Council is working to create a greener city, with space for water, which they see as a resource. The idea is that, in creating space for water, it is also possible to create new facilities for active recreation, more urban nature, greener urban spaces and new communities. So when adapting to a changing climate with more and heavier rainfall, citizens will be involved in the transformation of their local area, so that the City of Aarhus becomes greener and a good place for everyone.

DEEP PURPLE on the ice: algae are heating up Greenland

Purple algae are making the western Greenland Ice Sheet melt faster, as the algae darken the ice surface and make it absorb more sunlight. With an ERC Synergy Grant of €11 million, researchers from Aarhus University and two other European universities will examine the role of glacier algae in a warming climate.
