Annual r epor t Morten Østergaard, Danish Minister for Science, Innovation and Higher Education visits DTU and examines, among other student projects, the ‘Fold’ energy-plus-house. 6 March E xemplary efforts rewarded Professor Poul Løgstrup Bjerg receives an honorary award in recognition of many years of research in risk assessment and remediation technologies in contaminated soil, groundwater and surface water at the very highest international level. The award, entitled the ‘ATV-Fonden for Jord og Grundvands Hæderspris, professor Poul Harremöes in memoriam’ is presented every two years. 8 March  Article attracts international attention In collaboration with an international research team, researchers from DTU Systems Biology publish an article in The New England Journal of Medicine, which goes on to become one of the most regularly cited articles in the Web of Science research database. The article presents results that show how new knowledge about variations in the genetic mutations in cancer tumours can be used for more individual and effective cancer medicines. Martin Lidegaard, Danish Minister for Climate, Energy and Building arrives at PowerLabDK in one of DTU’s electric cars. 8 March  The energy-plus-house of tomorrow Morten Østergaard, the Danish Minister for Science, Innovation and Higher Education visits DTU and is shown examples of DTU’s study environment and innovative student projects. For example, he visits DTU Civil Engineering to find out more about ‘Fold’—DTU’s concept for the energy-plus-house of the future— which competed with 20 other energyplus houses in Madrid later in the year. 12 March  Virus found in mosquito DTU Vet finds the Schmallenberg virus in small mosquitoes called biting midges. The virus is spread between European livestock populations—cattle and sheep— resulting in stillborn and deformed calves and lambs. DTU’s ongoing monitoring and contingency work with both livestock and biting midges illustrates that the virus will spread throughout Denmark over the course of 2012. 15 March PowerLabDK opens its doors The experimental test facility known as PowerLabDK at DTU is officially opened by Martin Lidegaard, the Danish Minister for Climate, Energy and Building. PowerLabDK allows industrial players and research institutions to test out the intelligent and sustainable energy solutions of the future on a single platform. 16 March R esearch award for DTU Mechanical Engineering In recognition of her research, Dr. Techn. Grethe Winther from DTU Mechanical Engineering has been awarded the 2012 Statoil Prize.
