FINALLY! - Our changed name is now also visible to the world outside.  (The great moment captured by Bo Holm Jacobsen)

Christmas and New Year

The Christmas holidays are approaching. In this connection a little practical information:

  • All doors to the buildings will be locked from Friday 20 December to Thursday 2 January.
  • All mail, both external and internal, will be collected  during the same period and delivered here on Thursday 2 January 2014.

Despite poor prospects and worries for the coming year, we wish you all


Upcoming Events

25.-26. januar 2014
NOTICE: AU it has announced close-down of all it during the weekend due to maintenance work.

Meeting 19.12.

At the meeting with the scientific staff on Thursday 19th December, it became clear that an increasing challenge is especially the rate of coverage of 1.8 Mkr in 2014, 3.6 Mkr in 2015 and 5.4 Mkr in 2016.
For 2014 we miss about 1.4 Mio DKK. It is evident that no matter which financial model we use for channeling money from external funds to first the department and second the university, it must inevitably influence our conduct in relation to applications.
Discussions during and after the meeting make it clear that we have to differentiate the rate of coverage and overhead in relation to what is possible.
The previsously distributed mini-guide includes good information as to what  can be included in the budget at the different funds.
I thank you for a lively debate at the meeting and later discussions and would like to emphasize that all good suggestions are welcome as to how these primarily external challenges can be met.

Best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Søren B. Nielsen
