CO2 – From waste material to pharmaceutical in one single process

In one single process, Aarhus researchers are producing medicine out of carbon dioxide (CO2) – the major climate culprit. The process simultaneously spares workers in the pharmaceutical industry from contact with hazardous carbon monoxide.

A total of three engineering projects have received support from the Danish Council for Independent Research (DFF) this time. Postdoctoral Fellow Jacopo Catalono is seen here in the laboratory. He belongs to the research group developing new technology for energy conversion. (Photo: Lise Balsby)

DFF supports three new engineering projects

In connection with its annual investment in Danish research, the Danish Council for Independent Research (DFF) has awarded more than DKK 15 million in June to engineering research at Aarhus University.

Several electrodes on the head are currently required to achieve sufficiently good data quality when registering electrical activity patterns in the brain. Researchers at the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University, are now producing a small ear computer that can pave the way towards new EEG applications. (Photo: Lise Balsby)

Scientists predict the EEG of the future

In just a few years, researchers expect to be ready with the first version of a miniature apparatus for measuring electrical activity in the brain via the ear. Read more (in Danish only) here.

Conference: ROBO-PHILOSOPHY 2014 — Sociable Robots and the Future of Social Relations
R2D2 and 3CPO are no longer far in the future - soon it may be common for us to interact with socially intelligent robots in contexts of public service, elderly care, health care, or education. What are the conceptual, ethical, and political implications of this development? Are we witnessing a turning point in human cultural history? Social robotics puts traditional philosophical questions about human nature into a new key.
