Centuries-old art form generates completely new materials

Origami. For many people, the word means not much more than skilfully folding paper to resemble swans, frogs or other animals. But origami is much more. There are examples of origami throughout the modern world, but it's likely that you won't notice all the things that are in fact inspired by this 17th century Japanese art form.

Engineering alumnus nominated for this year’s European Inventor Award

As a child, he has spent hundreds of hours on the playroom floor, playing with small plastic bricks. As an adult, he landed a dream job with the LEGO Group. His job was to develop programmable toys. Now he has been nominated for the European Invention Award - one of the world's most important inventor awards. This is the story about the electronic…

By knowing the risk of premature birth at a very early stage, doctors can use preventive measures that could greatly reduce the otherwise significant risk. Doctor and phD Christine Rohr Thomsen (left) is seen here with assistant professor Mogens Hinge conducting experiments. Photo: AU Foto.

New technology to minimise the risk of premature birth

Premature birth is the most common cause of death among infants worldwide. Danish researchers are therefore working on a very special project that will make it possible to identify women at risk long before their child is born.

Record number of applicants seeking engineering degree programmes in Aarhus

More than ever have applied for engineering programmes at Aarhus University via quota 2. Food and biotechnology are particularly popular.

Smart technologies are only really smart when they can talk together. This also applies to agriculture, where internet-connected machines will pave the way for "agriculture 4.0". Senior researcher Claus Grøn Sørensen is working on just that: getting IoT products from many different manufacturers to be able to talk seamlessly together.

New research can put an end to allergic reactions

Researchers have found a new mechanism in which an antibody can prevent allergic reactions in a broad range of patients. It is a scientific breakthrough, which could pave the way for a far more effective allergy medicine.

New knowledge about waves to keep oil platforms operational for longer

Open-sea trials will reveal to researchers how waves arise, develop and impact the surroundings. This will make it possible to keep oil platforms in the North Sea operational for longer.

How we solve the problems of today with the technology of tomorrow

The stage was set for inspiring ideas at the official opening of the ORBIT Lab on Wednesday 13 December, when Aarhus University staff and students were invited along with representatives from the business sector – and many interesting technological innovation projects were displayed.

"In this project, we have started a journey to construct a cognitive computing system as a proof of concept," says Associate Professor Farshad Moradi, Department of Engineering, Aarhus University.
