Two MSc in engineering students who are developing a special kind of concrete for terrorism protection have each received a scholarship for a study trip to Switzerland.

"Denmark is at the forefront of research in district heating. With our projects, we will demonstrate that Denmark could be one of the first countries to exploit the existing housing stock economically as heat storage in district heating systems," says PhD Student Virginia Amato (left).

Denmark is to be climate-neutral by 2050. This requires major changes in our utilities sector, and buildings will play a significant role in this context. Three PhD students at Aarhus University talk about their research to help Denmark meet targets in its climate plans.
