A relatively young institution founded in 1928, Aarhus University (AU) is nonetheless home to two recent Nobel Prize winners: J.C. Skou (Chemistry, 1997) and Dale T. Mortensen (Economic Sciences, 2010).

AU consists of four faculties (Arts, Science and Technology, Business and Social Sciences and Health) and is a research-intensive university that strives for excellence in research as well as in education and collaboration with industry and society.

AU has a long history of collaboration with Chinese institutions and researchers. AU is a founding member of the Nordic Centre at Fudan University as well as a member of the European Centre at Peking University. In addition to this AU has cooperation agreements with among others Peking University, Tsinghua University and the Harbin Institute of Technology.

The university is involved in joint research projects and partnerships with Chinese researchers in a variety of fields, including nanotechnology (initiated by AU scientist Dr. Flemming Besenbacher, a member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences), food technology, genetics, computer sciences. AU is also a major participant in the Sino-Danish Center initiative, and AU’s rector Brian Bech Nielsen is currently serving as chairman of the SDC board.
