At the School of Science and Technology, research is pursued in the subjects of biology, computer science, physics, chemistry, mechanical engineering and mathematics. Much of the research revolves around our three strong research environments AASS, The life Science Centre and MTM.
Using AI to optimise taste and nutrition in plants
Basil is being grown in a robotic cultivation testbed at Örebro University. Each plant is monitored by sensing technology, providing researchers with valuable big data. Data that can be then used together with artificial intelligence to determine how to...
Dill grown in greenhouses with UV light better tasting
Örebro researchers added UV light in the greenhouse to impact the flavour in dill – and it paid off. To understand why the dill tastes better, researchers have examined what happens inside the dill. The next step is to grow dill that not only tastes...
Örebro–Wien chemistry lab collaboration resulted in 40 training videos
Gathering students, together with their teacher in a lab, is the norm for new chemistry students. The pandemic, however, forced Michaela Zeiner to rethink her teaching methods. In collaboration with a Vienna colleague, they quickly put together some...
