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.

Aarhus University will be the head of one of Europe’s largest investments so far - to change the public’s energy consumption. The objective is to develop an energy management system which can make the future use of electricity more flexible.

Researchers will change the energy consumption of the Europeans

In the coming years, Aarhus University will be the head of a large European energy research project and thus be examining patterns in the energy behaviour of private consumers. The goal is to make the Europeans better to use power when there is plenty of it.
