Dear Geoscience staff members
After rector's briefing last week about the AU finances and cost reduction plan we all have got a lot to think about.
Nothing I can say can take away your worries. My only advice is: talk with each other or with me, however, if you expect more detailed information, I do not have it
As mentioned AU must save about. 200 million DKK/year. ST's share is a permanent saving of 65 million DKK/year - approx. 43 million DKK in 2014 and the remaining part in 2015.
As I know more, I will let you know.
See the schedule and follow the debate on www.medarbejdere.au.dk/2014.

January Piotrowski purchased an "Image Analyzer" for FNU means. The instrument is supplied by the German company Sympatec and can measure a number of parameters in particle shape and size. The material must be dry. Particle size can be measured in the range of 0.02-20mm, particle shape can be measured from 0.06 mm.
