New antibodies for cancer treatment

Out of a library with billions of artificial antibodies, researchers have identified ten that can possibly prevent cancer tumours from growing.

Rune Hylsberg Jacobsen, Department of Engineering, has been appointed to head the AU Energy Systems and Markets network. In the coming years, he will thus spearhead the university’s inter-faculty energy research collaboration. (Photo: Anders Trærup)

AU Energy gains strength

Aarhus University is increasing its activities in the AU Energy network. The aim is to strengthen interdisciplinary research collaboration regarding energy.

With a grant of DKK 20 million, researchers at Aarhus University will experiment with feeding bacteria with electricity from wind turbines, thereby speeding up the microbiological processes that control the conversion of CO<sub>2</em> to methane.

Scientists will feed bacteria with electricity

Researchers will look at ways to feed bacteria in biogas plants using electrons from surplus electricity from wind turbines. The project is supported by a grant of DKK 20 million from the Innovation Foundation – Denmark.

The Software Group at the Department of Engineering is spearheading a major research project that has a grant of DKK 60 million. The aim is to make it easier and cheaper to produce prototypes of products with many sensors and computer systems. (Photo: Lise Balsby)

New European research will improve interaction between virtual and physical worlds

With a new EUR 8 million research project, Aarhus University will spearhead a project that aims to develop a new form of interaction between physical objects and their computer control using different software models. The technology will make it easier to develop credible cyber-physical systems (CPS), which will be very important for industry’s…
