The group behind AURORA

Contacts

The construction of the vessel has been planned since 2007, but the specific ideas and design did not gain momentum until 2009, as the money for the vessel was found. There is spent a lot of time finding ideas and using the university’s great knowledge of and experience with research vessels.

This assignment has been carried out by a project group consisting of highly skilled and experienced persons from the field. The group is broadly represented - not only regarding fields, but also within practical experience and knowledge.  Thus, most of the professional fields that primarily will be using AURORA’s research facilities both cover a theoretical and a practical approach.

The project group consists of:

Centre for Geomicrobiology

Department of Geoscience

Skipper

Torben Vang

Member of Administrative Staff

Department of Bioscience, Marine Ecology (Silkeborg)

Henrik Fossing

Deputy Head of Department, senior Researcher
