You can’t just turn up the cooling, because while the sows need to keep cool, their new-born piglets need a warm climate in order to develop as well as possible. Photo: AU Foto.

New project to minimise heat stress in pigs

Heat stress in highly productive sows in subtropical and tropical regions is a major problem, and if the sows are not cooled down, the consequences can have major economic and animal welfare impacts. A new ventilation project will tackle this issue.

Experimental funding for bold new engineering projects

Can we use ancient paper techniques to create new materials and ultramodern technology that can help us discover nature's own antibiotics? Two new projects at the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University, which aim to accomplish exactly this, are among the projects being funded in a new programme under the Villum Fonden foundation.
