With new facilities of 9,000 m2 Aarhus University will become a key part of the dynamic food cluster that has been created in Skejby in the northern part of Aarhus. Research news Camilla Fjord Madsen 1522759680 Danish food industry gets a new powerhouse in Aarhus When Aarhus University cuts the first sod for the new food science buildings in north of Aarhus, it is the start of the formation of a significant research based between health and food research and the food industry. The groundbreaking event for the new Aarhus University building will take place on 20 March, where the Chairman of the Central Denmark Regional Council, the Mayor of Aarhus and the Rector of Aarhus University will be among the participants. Events Camilla Fjord Madsen 1522759500 Taste of innovation Many people are under more pressure in their everyday lives, and this means that ready-prepared dishes end up in their shopping baskets when cooking becomes too much of a burden on a Wednesday night. But what are the nutritional values in such food? What strain do our altered eating habits put on the production chain – can agriculture keep up? What about the climate and nature? And our health? A new research centre now focuses sharply on the foods of the future. iFOOD opened on 25 September attended by more than 100 interested guests. Open house Tove Stenholt Nielsen 1506687660 New research centre focuses on the foods of the future While the demand for food products is increasing, consumer confidence in food is on the decline. The population of the world is increasing every year at a rate corresponding to the population of Germany. This places demands on the food production of the future if there will be enough food to go round. With its new strategic centre for food research, Aarhus University is now focusing on creating the sustainable foods of the future. The centre is called iFOOD and it opens on 25 September 2017.
