VILLUM FOUNDATION grants awarded to two young AU researchers

Wolf Eiserhardt from the Department of Bioscience and Jan Frahm from the Department of Mathematics have each received a Villum Young Investigator grant of 10 mill. DKK.

Over the past couple of years, AU students have helped ready the Delphini - 1 nanosatellite for launch. The satellite is now on board the International space station, from which it will be put into orbit around Earth in February. The aim of the ESA BIC DK is to encourage the students to start their own businesses within space technology after the end of their studies. Photo: Lars Kruse/AU Photo.
