PhD students win poster awards

Two PhD students have been declared as poster winners in summer schools for young researchers.

Two Danish engineering students have qualified for the finals of the global university competition in developing underwater robots. They are responsible for the electronic and mechanical design of The Little Mermaid – Aarhus University’s entrant. The robot will make it easier to study impassable areas of the Arctic below sea level. Pictured here are Poul Brix and Dennik Ringgaard with The Little Mermaid. (Photo: Lars Kruse)
