Press service

Do you need to contact a scientist? Do you need help to find a publication? We aim to assist the press as soon as possible and in regard to all types of assignment.

In order to make it easier for the press to access information about our research we have established a guide to our expert scientists. The guide lists scientists that have a broad knowledge of certain subjects within food and agriculture at the University of Aarhus.

Please contact us if you do not find the information you need:
