Give assignments within our courses, offer degree projects, host guest lectures and study visits or mentoring. Employ our students.
You are welcome to contact our otureach coordinator
You are of course welcome to contact our researchers and teaching staff directly. But if you are unsure of who to contact, you can also contact the Department’s outreach coordinator and head of department Åsa Kassman Rudolphi. She will be able to inform you about opportunities and direct you to the right person.
Good examples of collaboration and innovation
Uppsala University integrating into solar energy research
Marika Edoff, Professor and director for the Division of Solar Cell Technology will become the coordinator of Uppsala University’s new centre of excellence for solar energy, research – SOLVE. The ambition is for more widespread use of solar energy in Sweden. SOLVE will begin operations during January 2022.
Major new research programme on materials of the future
Uppsala University is among the higher education institutions jointly embarking on a big new materials research programme aimed at improving scope for a sustainable society. The programme is to be funded by the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation.
Pilotlina utvecklas för tillverkning av innovativa solceller i industriskala
Ett projekt i Italien, Tango, ska utveckla en pilotlina för tillverkning av innovativa solceller i industriskala i Catania på Sicilien. Marika Edoff är en av solcellsforskarna som är med i projektet som fått stöd av EU´s innovationsfond.
SR: "Robottyg" kan komma att hjälpa spädbarn med andning
Nya kroppsdelar ska printas med 3D-skrivare
Se inslag från SVT Nyheter Uppsala där Cecilia Persson berättar om pågående forskning kring benimplantat gjorda av magnesium som kroppen själv ska kunna bryta ner över tid och ersätta med kroppsegen benvävnad.
Robotic textiles for everything from breathing recovery to feeling surfaces in Space
Imagine an artificial fibre that can be programmed to contract and stretch just like human muscle fibres. Thin and flexible enough to be woven into a portable, robotic textile muscle, OmniFiber is the result of a collaboration between researchers at KTH, MIT Media Lab and Uppsala University.
Designing tomorrow’s human spare parts
Age, injury or disease: regardless of the cause, there is a growing need for treatments to replace bone and other body parts. Researchers at Uppsala University are using 3D printers to develop tomorrow’s biomaterials.
Degree project about declaring climate impact from buildings receives scholarship
A degree project about declaring climate impact from buildings by Agnes Östberg and Josefin Torgerssons receives an essay scholarship from Uppsala Municipality. The 10.000 kr scholarship is rewarded yearly to seven essays.
Total defense possible winner on 3D printing
3D-printed houses and personalized medicines printed at each hospital. And a big investment in 4D printing. Researchers now describe the rate of development in the field as "furious". The question is what will strike militarily?
Marika Edoff is interviewed about solar cell research in the UU research podcast
Marika Edoff belongs to the world elite in solar cell research, hear her talk about what is happening in the field right now and what research that is going on in her research group. Among other things, there is hope for an upcoming technological leap with so-called tandem solar cells. By combining cells of different materials that absorb light in different parts of the solar spectrum, one could increase the efficiency compared to today's solar cells by more than a third.
