“ DTU is about technology for people. DTU is about change for a better world.” DTU is an elite technical university, recog­nized for its high level of international research and its sought-after graduates. Through collaboration, our staff and students reach out to the world and work across disciplines to create value and growth by developing technologies that work in a globalized world, transcending social and cultural differences. We develop value-creating technology for people, exploiting synergies between research, education, innovation, and scientific advice in close collaboration with the outside world. With our ambitious strategy, Technology for People, we aim to develop Europe’s best engineering study programmes, to promote technologies for sustainable change, and we take the lead in realizing the potential of digitalization.

The global COVID-19 pandemic made 2020 a markedly different year for DTU. Both students and staff took a digital quantum leap within both teaching and teleworking, and contributed to society’s handling of the crisis. DTU researchers have been part of the mathematical modelling expert group at the Danish public health authorities providing analyses for the Prime Minister’s Office and the Ministry of Health, and has established a test laboratory for COVID-19, analysing clinical samples from Danish hospitals. We continue to play a crucial role in Danish society, delivering on our promise to develop and deploy technology for people.

Bringing ideas and inventions into the world

DTU has one of the most well-developed eco­ systems for innovation and entrepreneurship among technical universities in Europe. This ecosystem brings new ideas and inventions from the classrooms and research laboratories into the real world. Student innovation One of our most significant contributions to society is the innovative and entrepreneurial mindset of our students. A mindset they bring with them when they are employed in companies and organizations. Innovation and entrepreneurship are integrated into our Study Programmes, mandatory courses, and electives. Through projects, events, internships, and student jobs, our students gain experience and contacts within the business community. Business collaboration DTU has long-term, in-depth experience working with companies and organizations. Its wide range of collaborations include strategic research collaborations, continuing education, student projects, and conferences. We offer collaboration and partnership opportunities for the business community, who prefer DTU’s collaborative and innovative approach. We collaborate across academic

disciplines to build innovative solutions to societal challenges. In 2020, DTU had 1,794 collaborative research projects with companies. Start-ups In 2020, our students and employees continued creating start-ups that translate innovative ideas into solutions that benefit society. In 2020, 55 new start-ups were established—47 were student startups, 8 were established by employees. Commercialization In 2020, DTU researchers provided 120 new inventions expected to create commercial value. 52 sales, license, and option agreements were concluded on 62 inventions—the highest number recorded at DTU in a single year. DTU has a portfolio of 196 active contracts on the utilization of intellectual property rights. For the first time in the history of the University, the income from these agreements exceeds the expenditures on IPR protection.

a vibrant community of students, start-ups, and researchers collaborating across disciplines with businesses and organizations. Activities and services include business acceleration and funding for deep tech start-ups, advanced prototyping facilities, inspiring events, sprints, and hackathons. 2020 saw the opening of a 2,800 m² expansion of DTU Skylab’s facilities, which now totals more than 5,000 m². The facilities include labs, workshops, project rooms, co-working space, a start-up incubator, two auditoriums, and a prominent Developer Hall. This expansion was made possible by a generous donation from the A.P. Moller Foundation. In 2020, 137 start-ups and pre-start-ups received coaching and support through DTU Skylab, more than 300 prototypes were built, and 70 events— many of them virtual—were held. One of them was part of ‘Technology leaving no one behind’—an initiative focusing on inclusion and accessibility in educational and entrepreneurial activities.

A unique Danish model for the benefit of society

DTU offers scientific advice to public sector authorities, industries, and international institutions. The activities contribute significantly to knowledge transfer and informed decision-making in society.

PCR diagnostics and automation made it possible to accommodate society’s urgent need for test capacity, and quickly build a system with the capacity to handle 10,000 daily COVID-19 samples.

National scientific advice DTU currently has strategic partnerships with Danish authorities on food safety, chemicals, aquatic resources, diagnostics, waste management, geodetics, traffic infrastructure, and radioactivity.

Through the research project HOPE, researchers, using behavioural data, investigated how the population responds to COVID-19 restrictions. This research helps authorities understand the link between crisis management, the population’s behaviour, and the prevalence of infection in society.

Our advisory services include complex problem solving, risk characterization for informed standard setting, development of surveillance systems for ongoing risk assessments, and diagnostic capacity for contingency planning and crisis resolution. Scientific advice from universities, a unique Danish model, is beneficial to society because it provides synergy between university research and applied research, as well as an in-depth understanding of sector-specific challenges, acquired through extensive collaborations with our strategic partners.

Additionally, DTU researchers have been involved in developing mathematics and codes in a model that can predict developments in COVID-19. As part of Statens Serum Institut’s expert group, DTU contributes to the development of a new mathematical model that calculates how the coronavirus epidemic will develop. This model forms the basis for Statens Serum Institut, the Danish Government, and the Danish Parliament recommendations.

During the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, DTU has played a vital role in infection detection, containment, and prediction. DTU’s in-depth experience with

research vessel to replace the current research ship. The new research ship will serve the longterm needs of the Danish research communities for multidisciplinary research on vessel capacity at sea and in the Arctic and will contribute to the understanding of the climate and consequences of climate change. International scientific advice In addition to DTU’s national advisory activities, the University provides scientific advice to international authorities and organizations. The UNEP DTU Partnership provides advice on the transition towards lower carbon development paths, and supports integration of climate resilience in national development through in-depth research, policy analysis, and capacity building activities. DTU is designated as a special EU reference laboratory in five different areas—including the fields of fish diseases and antimicrobial resistance.

At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, DTU’s Center for Diagnostics very quickly reorganized and expanded its laboratory capacity so the University could meet society’s urgent need for testing.
