Research Projects (List Is Not Complete)
34 research projects from 1999-2010 with a total sum of 54.6 Mkr (to Faculty of Life Sciences). Projects have been funded by national research foundations as well as private and EU funds. Partners have been national research labs (e.g. AMI, DFU, DJF, Delta, Force, Risø, SSI), private companies (e.g. Arla, Chr. Hansen, Novozymes, Danisco, TotalFinalElf, Unilever, Ferring, Novo, SFK Technology, Nordisk, Einar Villumsen, ChewTech, Qpharma, PBIDansensor, Rockwool, Risø, DTU) and international partners (e.g. Unilever, universities from Brussels, Tarragona, Amsterdam, Crete, Milan, Leuven, Olso Washington, Nottingham).
The subjects of the projects have mainly focussed on the use of chemometrics in process analytical technology and metabonomics. A few titles can be mentioned:
