Three years ago, murky water was lapping at the dock. Today, a 38,000-square-metre star-shaped building is now waiting for students, researchers and companies to move in by 2014. The topping-out ceremony for Aarhus University’s new waterfront engineering building in Aarhus was held on Monday 3 December.

These days, 37 Danish and Chinese students participate in Innovation Camp Shanghai. Here, they develop brand new ideas for consumer electronics to meet the demand of the growing Chinese market.

Students test new innovation method in China

Do a Dane and a Chinese have identical preferences when it comes to consumer electronics? And is it possible to crack the code for the Chinese market in only 12 days? Tomorrow, some of the most talented engineering students present the results of an innovation camp in Shanghai to the top management of the Danish company Bang & Olufsen.

Researchers from Aarhus University are behind a new sensor technology that detects damages on wind turbines before they result in substantial visible symptoms. This may pave the way for newer and much cheaper wind turbine designs where the use of materials can be reduced significantly.

New technology makes better wind turbines

Small sensors can detect damages on wind turbines with a precision not seen until now before the damages can be spotted with the naked eye. The technology is ground-breaking and makes it possible to construct wind turbines with a minimum use of construction materials and without compromising safety.

A simple blood sample  - and the doctors are able to inform the patient whether she has cancer, which type it is and how she will be treated most optimally. During the next three years, researchers from Aarhus University will be working on realising this scenario.

Engineers pave the way for better cancer treatment

As entire Denmark is collecting funds for The Danish Cancer Society (Kræftens Bekæmpelse) these days, researchers are working hard in the labs. They have just received a large research grant and three years to develop a new technology to diagnose cancer by means of a simple blood sample.

Aarhus University is experiencing an increase in the number of  Master of Engineering students.  And this is a positive development as a lack of engineers in Denmark is rapidly approaching
