New research project to cure epilepsy with artificial intelligence

The Department of Engineering at Aarhus University is part of a new international research team with an EU grant of DKK 60 mill. (EUR 8.5 mill.). The aim is to try to find a cure for epilepsy with a ground-breaking treatment method.

On May 3, the Department of Engineering opened the 2,100 sqm. research facility Deep Tech Experimental Hub. The hub is a critical element in the build-up of the research-based, engineering programs, which is a strategic focus for Aarhus University. Photo: Lars Kruse, AU Photo.

Prestigious funding for new engineering projects

On Thursday, four researchers from the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University received grants from the Independent Research Fund Denmark. In total, Science and Technology has received a total of DKK 133.4 mill. (EUR 17.7 mill.), divided between 39 projects.

"Engineering is about translating deep theoretical knowledge into solutions to real issues, and I see this solution-oriented approach again and again from our students," says Thomas Toftegaard, head of department. One of the university's engineering students is Soffi Ester Olesen (in the photo), and she also uses her education to make a difference. On her second semester, she has helped develop a greenhouse gas membrane. Photo: Lars Kruse.
