Research

We adress global challenges through education, research and knowledge exchange, creating future:

  • Digital solutions with respect towards human behaviour and requirements.
  • Technology and knowledge for sustainable change.
  • Architekture and design that integrates aesthetics and enineering.

With basic research, specific research partnerships and Industrial PhDs, the faculty has distinguished itself both nationally and internationally for many years. We work closely with the business community and international research institutes, and maintain focus on developing our interdisciplinary research environments so as to contribute to AAU’s paramount goal of creating knowledge for the world.
