On 1 January 2022 the Novo Nordisk Foundation CO2 Research Center, CORC, opened at AU as the first solely mission-driven research center of the Novo Nordisk Foundation. The center is on a crucial mission to mitigate climate change by developing novel science and early technologies for carbon capture, conversion and reuse.  

As an interdisciplinary center, CORC is collaborating with Danish and international universities and industries, bringing together world-leading research in capture technologies, and in chemical and life sciences CO2 conversion. But it doesn’t end there: the center has an open approach to collaboration and new ideas, and at AU there is an abundant number of brilliant minds with innovative thoughts! 

“We would like to invite employees and students to an introduction to the center where people can get an idea of CORC’s unique interdisciplinary structure and mission, and the various ways you can get involved. We are keen to hear your innovative thoughts and ideas or to find ways to collaborate with you,” says Executive Director of CORC, Professor Alfred Spormann.  

Alfred Spormann will give a presentation of the research center and the CORC team, and you will get the chance to ask questions and share your thoughts and ideas. Afterwards, you are invited to stay for drinks and snacks, and to get to know the people behind CORC and the researchers involved.  

The presentation will take place on Tuesday 26 April from 14:00 until 15:30 in the iNANO Auditorium, followed by an informal reception with drinks and snacks in the Foyer of iNANO.
