Signal processing to improve remediation of oil-contaminated soil

By measuring the electrical conductivity of the soil, researchers from Aarhus University, in collaboration with Ejlskov A/S, are developing an inexpensive and accurate method of tackling oil pollution. The project is being supported with DKK 17 million from Innovation Fund Denmark's Grand Solutions.

AU researcher receives award for pioneering research on allergy treatment

Associate Professor Edzard Spillner and his research group at the Department of Engineering, Aarhus University, are the first in the world to unravel a laboratory method that can “turn off” allergies.

"This is an exciting project, as it is crucial that we make the digital infrastructure more energy efficient," says Danish Minister for Higher Education and Science, Tommy Ahlers. Photo: Colourbox.
"The project will also investigate and implement simple new energy-efficient and scalable end-to-end security schemes across the IoT infrastructure," says Associate Professor Martijn Heck from the Department of Engineering at Aarhus University. Photo: Lars Kruse, AU Foto.

DKK 100 million for faster, greener Internet

Internet traffic has risen a thousand-fold since 2000 and currently accounts for around 10 per cent of the world’s electricity consumption. This is a trend that is set to increase. There is therefore a great need for new infrastructure offering energy-efficient broadband solutions, and a new Grand Solutions project with funding from Innovation…

Sustainability on the curriculum for 370 pupils

Perhaps the Danish high-school students who know most about sustainability. At all events, 370 students from Aarhus Tech now know a little more after hearing about the latest knowledge and technology last Friday at a theme day at Aarhus University.
