Aarhus University/MFMP LENR Project Covered on Danish Website

Thanks to readers who have pointed out the following article from the Danish website Ingeniøren (The Engineer) which looks at the recent developments at Aarhus University where the Martin Fleischmann Memorial Project has been invited to collaborate on a LENR research project. The link below is to an English translation (by Google) of the original article in Danish.

The article states that the project will be overseen by a professor of Chemistry, Kim Daasbjerg, and that one graduate student will work on the project full-time, and another part-time.

The article references the following video by Bob Greenyer of the MFMP where he outlines to potential supporters in Silicon Valley (they were seeking $180k for an 18-month project) the mission of their organization and focuses on the Open Science approach for research in the LENR field, and explains they are collaborating with Aarhus’ University’s iNano (Interdisciplinary Nanotechnology) project. Bob explains that in addition to being interested in LENR, they also want to branch into Open Science.

The Engineer states that they have spoken with both Bob Greenyer and Kim Daasbjerg, but they didn’t want to be quoted for the article.

    Hi Bob
    Can you break it down if possible to get a better picture of where the money you
    need will be used.
    Regards

    What is an icmps facility you say you require.

      Maybe the University of Alberta
      could help.
      Stanley Pons worked there sometime in his career.

      • Albert D. Kallal

        Golly, I was not aware of Stanley Pons working at U of A. I was in fact attending and working for the computing department (instructional systems) during that time frame – might have walked past this hero more then once!

          Hi Albert
          That Pons worked there is one reason Canada should be
          going all out on Lenr research.
          We could call it the crazy Canucks of Lenr

          Canada launches review of its research enterprise | Science | AAAS
          http://www.sciencemag.org › news › 2016/06
          Jun 13, 2016 – If history is any guide, Canadian Minister of Science Kirsty Duncan may have just set loose the proverbial cat amongst the pigeons by … They should research Cold Fusion or LENR.

          • Albert D. Kallal

            Well, for the FIRST time CBC news also has a article covering a bit of Rossi and the announcement of the congress briefing in the USA.

            CBC article here:

            http://www.cbc.ca/news/technology/congress-cold-fusion-briefing-1.3772873

            So that briefing occurring today in the US congress about LENR had made some press coverage. The above CBC article even has a picture of Rossis 1mw plant.

            So hopefully, some institutions and universities in Canada will re-open LENR as a research path. Canada also had several “pot” belly nuclear reactors (low pressure) running in the 1970’s.
            In fact most students at the University of Alberta don’t realize that such a reactor exists and is running in the basement of the Pharmacy building. I am also a big fan of LFTR (thorium) which again is a low pressure reactor – they are amazing safe and maintains free.
            Even without thorium, these low pressure pot belly types of reactors are a viable source of power today. However, with increasing interest in LENR, and not needing to obtain uranium, then LENR is still the way forward for our energy needs.

        I guess it’s not the same thing but I wonder if these guys have something that could be used?

        https://www.liverpool.ac.uk/media/livacuk/massspectrometry/pdfs/Development,of,quadrupole,mass,spectrometers,using,rapid,prototyping,technology.pdf

        I have no idea if they are approachable on LENR research though. But it’s a good opportunity to be part of it if they are.

        • Bob Greenyer

          I think the more people that can approach more people – the more chance there is of finding people that are both competent and willing. There are those that are patho-skeptic and will not look at evidence. There are others that will be skeptical but at least are scientific or curious enough to consider the evidence.

          I am rapidly learning first hand the battles that must be waged to get people to even consider reviewing the evidence – it is a valuable experience. Here, inside this group – we have grown with the field in recent years, so much background does not have to be explained from scratch unlike those new to the field that start with a negative, pre-conceived opinion.

    Dear Andrea,
    the Danish University of Aarhus has announced a research project on LENR.
    The article is publicated by the Danish magazine ‘Ingeniøren’ (the Engineer), at this link :
    https://ing.dk/artikel/aarhus-universitet-kobler-sig-pa-omstridt-projekt-kold-fusion-186662
    In the article, you find repeated and special mentions to your work.
    A new LENR institutional support is born in Denmark, thanks to your huge work.

    Renato Estri:
    Thank you for the interesting information. This is a nice recognition of our hard work from a prestigious University.
    Warm Regards,
    A.R.

    Hi Bob
    If I was a multi millionaire I would say
    here is the money.Give me a front row
    seat at what is going on and if we can
    figure a way to make some money that
    would be great too.
    Has there been someone with deep pockets that has made an offer.?Or maybe you don’t work this way.
    Regards
    Sam

    • Bob Greenyer

      Thanks

      We’ll keep on trying to make a difference with what we have, if someone comes along that can materially help and genuinely does, we’ll of course let you know as we have always done. There are those out there with the means, but do they have the understanding to participate and humanity to connect with the value proposition?

      It is the people of our small community here that have taken the MFMP story this far – and often the most valuable contribution is those critical views you guys make of our work, the research into related material that you do and the live graphing and analysis of our experiments that help us all visualise the data as it emerges.

      • sam

        HI Bob
        My idea of participating would be to follow your work
        and try to figure it out.Maybe coming up with some
        ideas for were the technology would have most value
        for humanity.
        I know Science is a slow painstaking process.
        Maybe you are right in taking the slow road.
        But i think sometimes lets speed it up a bit if we can.
        Somebody with money who wanted to have an expensive
        hobby and some fun and maybe make some money
        could do this.
        Regards
        Sam

          The chance to be part of history in such an amazing way does not come around often.

          Many contribute in the different ways they can. But… If some one is able to help in that way it would enable everything, that would be amazing.

          • sam

            Hi Stephen
            I am sure there would be some
            rich person that would meet Bobs standards and do that.
            But they have no knowledge of Bob and the MFMP.
            Regards
            Sam

            • Stephen

              Yup. I hope Bob, MFMP the wider community too and those people who can help find each other someday.

    Open Science, this report moves the World just one small step forward.
    Positive changes that could, if not destroyed by that small selfish “elite” that become the only losers, put science and much else into it’s correct position of improving the lives of all.
    A way of rewarding those scientists and others who excel in such advances needs to be attached to the system.
    It is one of the Nordic countries that are leading the, care for all, policy yet again.

    • Gerard McEk

      I fully agree George! Both the University and MFMP must be waardedaling for this initiative!
