purpose of AAU Update

AAU Update is the official news site for all staff members at Aalborg University (AAU).

The purpose of AAU Update is to promote unity across the university and to be the go-to place for the latest AAU news and information. AAU Update aims at contributing to a cohesive, shared identity and culture at AAU.

AAU Update supports the university's purpose and intends to reflect university life by publishing news stories on education, research and cooperation with interest for all staff across organisational and geographical units.

AAU Update will ensure clear management communication by engaging constructively and critically in communicating decisions made by the management as well as issues important to staff across the organisation.

The English version of AAU Update aims at providing news stories and information relevant to a broad spectrum of international staff members in English and without too much delay. However, since most content is translated after it has been published in Danish some delay must be expected.

The articles on the English version are translated from Danish to English by a language consultant at AAU Communication, or by communication staff at the departments, deans’ offices, AAU Innovation and Shared Services units.
