New study about patterns of citations between judgments from iCourts
A new study from the Center of Excellence iCourts at the University of Copenhagen uses scientific methods to analyze the underlying patterns of citations between judgments. Professor Henrik Palmer Olsen has collaborated with four other researchers, all with different backgrounds, in fields of computer science, data science, and mathematics. The study, “Emergence of network effects and predictability in judicial system,” has been published in the journal Scientific Reports.

Professor Rita Felski has been appointed to the prestigious “Clark Lectures”
Professor Rita Felski has been appointed to deliver this year’s prestigious “Clark Lecture” at Trinity College in Cambridge. Professor Felski’s lecture “Remix: On Literature and Theory,” the first of four Clark Lectures, was held virtually on February 18, 2021; the other three will be held in March. All Clark Lectures are about English Literature and are open to everyone through Zoom. Professor Felski holds one of the DNRF’s Niels Bohr Professorships and is currently working on the research project Uses of Literature at the University of Southern Denmark (SDU).

New study from CEBI explores problems with self-control
A new study, with the participation of Assistant Professor Patrick Moran from the Center of Excellence CEBI at the University of Copenhagen, has explored what kind of self-control is required when it comes to saving money in households. Among other things, the study explored what role temptation played in general when it came to pensions, credit cards, and other financial factors. The study, “Estimating temptation and commitment over the life cycle,” has been published in the scientific journal International Economic Review.

New study from CNG about quantum emitters in Science Advances
A new study from the Center of Excellence CNG at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) explored the fabrication of quantum emitters in two-dimensional materials for future quantum applications. Research on quantum emitters is essential, since it is one of the cornerstones of quantum technology. The study has been published in the journal Science Advances.

New experiment from CCQ about quasiparticles
Quasiparticles consist of atoms and exist in nature, but the process of how they are formed has been unknown until now. A new experiment from the DNRF’s Center for Complex Quantum Systems (CCQ) at Aarhus University has successfully created an environment in which quasiparticles can be formed, and therefore the researchers are able to observe the formation. The study has been accepted for publication in the scientific journal Nature Physics.

Three researchers from CML contribute to an anthology
Ph.D. fellow Rasmus Vangshardt from the Center of Excellence CML at the University of Southern Denmark has co-edited a new Danish collection of articles about the role of the historical within the humanities. The anthology, called “The historical gaze,” will be published by Aarhus University Press. Twenty-nine scholars have contributed to writing and editing the book, including Professor and head of center Lars Boje Mortensen, as well as Associate Professor Thomas Heebøll-Holm from CML.

New study from DAWN revises previous theory about gamma-ray burst
A new study from the DNRF’s DAWN at the University of Copenhagen and DTU revises a previous theory about a so-called gamma-ray burst. The previous paper came to the conclusion that what had been seen was an exploding star in the farthest galaxy known, but the likelihood of this is one in a billion. The researchers from DAWN therefore revised the theory and came to the conclusion that it was much more likely that what was seen was an artificial satellite that came into view.

New online event from PERSIMUNE
A new online event about basic and translational research will be held on March 4, 2021, from 16:00 to 17:00 by the DNRF Center for Personalized Medicine of Infectious Complications in Immune Deficiency (PERSIMUNE) at Rigshospitalet. It is a new platform whereby people with an interest in personalized medicine can meet, discuss, be inspired, and create new collaborations for future projects. On March 4, the role of Interferon Lambda 4 (IFNL4) in infection and inflammation as well as Personal Genetics and Polygenic Risk Score will be discussed. The event will be held virtually.
