Organisation profile

At the AT CERE Research Centre it is our objective to meet the challenges of today’s petroleum, chemical, material and biotech industries through deep insights, innovative discoveries and the highest level of international research expertise.

About us

AT CERE stands for Applied Thermodynamics – Center for Energy Resources Engineering. The AT CERE Research Centre, as part of DTU’s Department of Chemical and Biochemical Engineering, is a centre focused in the area of Applied Thermodynamics and Mathematical Modeling.

AT CERE is associated with the DTU interdepartmental activity CERE, which is Denmark’s leading research centre in the areas of Petroleum Engineering, including Enhanced Oil Recovery, flow assurance, CCS and petroleum geoscience. AT CERE and CERE host an industry consortium, which includes around 30 companies from all over the world.

Our research

AT CERE is a dynamic research group with an excellent track record and international reputation in the areas of:

  • Applied thermodynamics
  • Transport processes
  • Mathematical modelling

We are committed to perform high-quality experimental and theoretical research with international impact, in which we often combine the above disciplines in broader projects of interest to chemical and biochemical engineering.

Our History

AT CERE has, in its various forms, a 30+ years history.

The centre in its original form (first as a centre in applied thermodynamics, and later, since 1987, in the form of an engineering research centre, IVC-SEP) was established in the early 80’s by Professor Aage Fredenslund, who was succeeded in the leadership in 1994 by Professor Erling Stenby.

Since 2009 AT CERE’s activities are connected to DTU’s interdepartmental activity CERE.
