More information

On the 1st of June Demcon will give a lunch lecture. Demcon is a high-tech company that is working on solutions for social challenges in many different sectors. Examples of sectors Demcon is active are aerospace, agriculture & food, life sciences, high tech systems & materials and many more. Their goal is to develop, manufacture and supply high-quality technology and innovative product to solve challenging technical and social issues.

For a company that aims to capture CO2 directly out of the air, Demcon has developed a concept of an industrial-scale machine that applies their process as efficiently as possible. Cost price and energy use per captured ton of CO2 were major drivers for the design. Demcon had to make elaborate estimations on these, but also make high-impact decisions such as what shape it should be, and what grid connections they could use, early in the process. See this recent news article.

At this lunch lecture, free lunch will be provided. The subscription policy applies to this activity. Subscriptions are open until Tuesday, May 3oth.

You can earn 1 MyFuture value for attending this activity.

Studium Generale lecture Northern Lights

May 3rd, 2023

During the lunchbreak of Monday May 8, Noora Partamies will give a Studium Generale lecture on the Northern Lights in the Blue Hall in Auditorium. Noora explains how the Northern Lights occur, what they are, what their effects are, and why they are important to study. The atmospheres of the polar regions are constantly bombarded by energetic electrons, which cause the aurora borealis, and sometimes by more energetic protons from solar eruptions. Behind the scenes, these particles have much longer-lasting effects than just the emission of light. We think that this SG lecture could fit the interest of Physics students well! You can subscribe via the website of Studium Generale.
