DKK 16 million for daring experiments at Aarhus University

The VILLUM FOUNDATION has granted approx. DKK 16 million to eight research projects at Aarhus University. The eight researchers behind the projects are all from Science and Technology, and the projects have been selected anonymously based on how innovative and daring they are.

Danish Centre for Food and Agriculture recalls beef report

The DCA - the Danish Centre for Food and Agriculture and the authors of a report on the climate impact of beef have decided to recall the report, as it does not live up to the university's standards for arm's length and independent research. The academic content of the report is to undergo an independent international assessment by peer review.

More women on IT degree programmes

Admissions of women to IT degree programmes at Aarhus University have increased by 31 per cent since 2016. This is more than the general national level for Denmark.

IT degree programmes fully booked

114 young people have chosen Aarhus University's three new degree programmes as their first priority.

On 3 May, the Department of Engineering opened its 2,100 m2 Deep Tech Experimental Hub research facility. The experimental hub is a critical element in developing research-based engineering science study programmes. These are a strategic focus for Aarhus University. Photo: Lars Kruse, AU.

Aarhus University introduces admission requirements for all technical and science degree programmes

The admission requirements will be introduced from summer 2019. This means that young people dreaming of a career within these fields, but who are unsure whether they meet the requirements, should remember to apply via quota 2, which has a deadline for applications on 15 March.

Lars Henrik Andersen has been named acting dean of ST

Lars Henrik Andersen, professor and former department head, will become acting dean of the Faculty of Science and Technology when Niels Christian Nielsen steps down on 15 February. He will be responsible for managing the faculty throughout the process leading up to its possible split-up.

Focus on the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Research and education at Science and Technology point directly towards the themes in the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This enables the faculty to play a key role in developing solutions to major global challenges. How the university supports the SDGs and sustainability is therefore a very important focal point.

Danish researchers have now shown that fish such as cod move around with an internal fitness tracker that continuously logs information about the fish’s metabolism. Information is recorded in the calcium structure in the fish’s otoliths and can be used to gain new knowledge about how changes in the marine environment affect a fish’s metabolism and behavior.

The fish’s fitness tracker. The carbon in fish otoliths comes from two sources, partly from the water in the form of dissolved inorganic carbon (blue bullets) and partly from the food burnt off as part of the fish's metabolism (red bullets). Carbon from the two sources is diffused into the fish’s blood. When the fish’s metabolism increases, the proportion of carbon from the food increases, and there will be more "red bullets” in the blood supplying the carbon to the otoliths in the fish’s inner ear. In this way, the growth rings of the otoliths continuously record record information on the fish’s metabolism in the form of the so-called delta 13C value. Illustration: Ming Tsung-Chung.

Otoliths - the fish’s black box - also keeps an eye on the metabolism

For the first time ever, an international research team has shown that fish otoliths record information on fish metabolism. Analyses of old and new otoliths can therefore provide new knowledge about how different species of fish adapt to new conditions, including climate change.

New centre focusing on life impacts

There is not much knowledge about the effects of environmental and social impacts on health, quality of life and causes of death. A newly established research centre is now working to find out, by applying big data and an interdisciplinary approach to the area.
