Denmark’s Political Festival (Folkemødet) 2021: TECH tents to open in both Allinge and Copenhagen

What will be the role of universities in the green transition? Is 'Denmark as a test country' an opportunity or a constraint? And can we increase the supply of highly qualified labour by allowing older people to remain active on the labour market for longer? These are some of the questions on the agenda in the TECH tents at this year's Political…

"Evolution has come up with some quite inspiring solutions during the ages, and there's a lot to be gained in a geotechnical perspective," says Assistant Professor Hans Henning Stutz, one of the scientists behind the new research. Photo: Colourbox.

New research: Snakeskin can inspire to safer buildings

It might be a good idea to look for inspiration in nature when designing load-bearing foundations for buildings. Researchers from Aarhus University and University of California Davis have found a significantly increased load-bearing capacity for piles when using snakeskin as surface inspiration.

New magazine from AU Engineering: Together, we create the future

The green transition, sustainable technologies and interdisciplinary solutions to society's greatest challenges are the focal points of AU Engineering's new engineering profile magazine.

"Our projects are almost always in densely built-up urban areas. So it’s extra important that we minimise our impact on the environment," says Lars Dithmer, Head of Sustainability at Per Aarsleff A/S. Photo: Per Aarsleff A/S

New project to showcase the green construction site of tomorrow

There hasn’t been much focus on the green transition of construction sites – but there’s a lot to be gained. A number of companies and knowledge institutions have now joined forces to establish a full-scale demo construction site as it may look in a greener future.

All information about the construction and all its phases are to be included in the digital twin, giving full situational awareness to management at all times. This provides researchers the opportunity to model the phases of construction in extreme detail very early in the project, where i.a. hazards and risks can be detected and reacted upon proactively.

New research in digital twins allows for much safer and more efficient construction

Artificial intelligence is a key word in two major EU-funded projects aiming to dramatically reduce the number of accidents and close call incidents on construction sites.

"One cannot alone accomplish anything truly great. Results are always achieved in collaboration with others, and I’m very much in favour of seeking inspiration from other worlds and industries, so that you don’t sit in your own silo and think you know best," says bridge building pioneer Klaus H. Ostenfeld, new honorary professor at the Department of Civil and Architectural Engineering, Aarhus University. Photo: Søren Kjeldgaard.
