International dairy award goes to Danish-Swedish researcher from Faculty of Life Sciences, University of Copenhagen

Professor Ylva Ardö, Faculty of Life Sciences, has been granted the prestigious 2008 IDF Award for her significant contribution to dairy research worldwide. Professor Ardö is the first woman and the first researcher from Scandinavia to receive the award.

The award was presented during the IDF Open Forum on Present and Future Work, at the International Dairy Federation (IDF) World Dairy Summit in Mexico.

Professor Ylva Ardö has developed a new technique to preserve milk samples using bronopol, which is not detrimental to health, for analysis of milk for payment and breeding. The technique is useful for spectroscopic as well as laboratory reference methods analyzing e.g. fat, protein, lactose and cell content and is today used by most routine analysis laboratories for milk samples in Europe, North America and Australia.

She is an initiator of a concept for a new variety of highly appreciated low-fat semi-hard cheese (10% fat) that is produced by dairy companies since more than 15 years. The first developed cheese variety has won several prices. The concept has later been applied by the large international culture producing companies.

Professor Ylva Ardö is a pioneer for using Lactobacillus helveticus as ripening culture in cheese made with mesophilic starter and has also contributed to characterization of the non-starter microflora and its synergy with starter in ripening of European cheese.

Moreover, Professor Ylva Ardö has played a leading role in the development of analysis methods for characterization for cheese ripening in international cooperation.

Within the international education in dairy technology field, Professor Ylva Ardö has been the initiator and driving force behind internationalization of the worldwide renowned Danish dairy education MSc programme at Faculty of Life Sciences, University of Copenhagen. The programme is characterised by a high academic level at as well as close relations to production.

Professor Ardö has been a professor of dairy technology at Faculty of Life Sciences since 2003. Earlier this year, she was given the Swiss Cheese Award for “Best Cheese Scientist Worldwide” in Bern, Switzerland.

Im Focus: ILA 2018: Laser alternative to hexavalent chromium coating

At the 2018 ILA Berlin Air Show from April 25–29, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is showcasing extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA): A video documents how for metal components that are highly loaded, EHLA has already proved itself as an alternative to hard chrome plating, which is now allowed only under special conditions.

When the EU restricted the use of hexavalent chromium compounds to special applications requiring authorization, the move prompted a rethink in the surface...

Im Focus: Radar for navigation support from autonomous flying drones

At the ILA Berlin, hall 4, booth 202, Fraunhofer FHR will present two radar sensors for navigation support of drones. The sensors are valuable components in the implementation of autonomous flying drones: they function as obstacle detectors to prevent collisions. Radar sensors also operate reliably in restricted visibility, e.g. in foggy or dusty conditions. Due to their ability to measure distances with high precision, the radar sensors can also be used as altimeters when other sources of information such as barometers or GPS are not available or cannot operate optimally.

Drones play an increasingly important role in the area of logistics and services. Well-known logistic companies place great hope in these compact, aerial...
