In the DEIS group, we have a strong focus on collaboration. The group is involved in numerous national (Danish) and externally funded international (European) research projects.

We maintain strong and long-term links to several outstanding researchers and research labs as well as industrial collaborators. These collaborations form the basis of several of our international projects but also for the basis for joint research and joint publications also outside of formal research projects. Maintaining and fostering these collaborations enhances quality and impact of our research. 

Below you find a list of both current and completed research projects, as well as networks and partnerships in which we are involved.  

Collaborate with us

We seek to share our knowledge and our research. If you are interested in collaborating with us, please contact the DEIS Matchmaker Tina Sihm.

Flexible Energy Denmark (FED) is a Danish digitization project aimed at turning Danish electricity consumption flexible to enable excess power production from wind turbines and solar cells.

  • Partners: 24 partners representing Danish universities, utilities, companies and municipalities.
  • The project is funded by Innovation Foundation Denmark.


The Distributed ONline monitoring of the Urban waTer cycle (DONUT) project utilizes current advances in smart energy-efficient sensors, IoT, big-data and ICT combined with comprehensive knowledge and experience to develop a unified cost-efficient grand solution spanning from measurement to information creation.

  • Partners: Aalborg University - Department of Computer Science and Department of Civil Engineering, Aarhus Vand, Vand-Center Syd, MONTEM, InforMetics, and Aarhus Municipality.
  • The project is funded by the Innovation Fund Denmark.

Improving energy efficiency in existing buildings can and should be achieved through deep renovation. In comparison, smart technologies can increase the efficiency and the flexibility of buildings in a shorter term and with much less investments. The domOS project aims to develop an operating system for smart services in buildings.

  • Partners: 10 partners from five European countries
  • Funding: The project is funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.

The European Research & Innovation project FEVER aims at demonstrating and implementing solutions that leverage the potential of flexibility in generation, consumption and storage of electricity. 

  • Partners: Seventeen partners from eight European countries
  • Funding: The partners receive funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.

The Energy Consumption Optimization in Radio Access Networks (ECO-RAN) project will help accelerate green and sustainable transition in mobile telecommunication.

  • Partners: Aalborg University, 2operate and TT-Netværket P/S.
  • The project is partly funded by CLEAN.


In the project CLAIRE - Controlling water in an urban environment - researchers from Aalborg University attempt to improve the possibilities for understanding and controlling water in urban areas. The aim is to make certain the water does not end up in the wrong place at the wrong time.

  • Partners: Department of Computer Science and Department of the Built Environment, Aalborg University
  • Funding: The project is funded by the VILLUM FOUNDATION

In the BEO-COVID project researchers from Aalborg University contribute to developing a decision-support system that authorities can use in relation to the reopening of Denmark following the Corona lockdown. The project utilizes a well-established method where the researchers, colloquially speaking, play chess against the virus and offer proposals of which measures should be carried out at different points in time.

  • Partners: Department of Computer Science and Department of Electronic Systems, Aalborg University
  • Funding: The project is funded by the Poul Due Jensen Foundation
