Innovation and Industrial Collaboration

Innovation and Industry

DTU collaborates with the industry in arctic matters. Collaboration with external partners is considered as an important and strategic mission and ensures that DTU’s research-based knowledge and technologies are being disseminated to the society. The industrial collaboration is a key access for DTU researchers to the research and innovation agenda in the business community.

EIT RawMaterials

DTU is a member of the EIT RawMaterials – a network that collaborates within the knowledge triangle between research, education and business. EIT RawMaterials is initiated by the EIT (European Institute of Innovation and Technology) and funded by the European Commission. Its mission is to boost competitiveness, growth and attractiveness of the European raw materials sector via radical innovation and guided entrepreneurship.

EIT RawMaterials unites more than 100 partners – academic and research institutions as well as businesses – from more than 20 EU countries. They collaborate on finding new, innovative solutions to secure the supplies and improve the raw materials sector all along its value chain – from extraction to processing, from recycling to reuse. One of the concerns of the EIT RawMaterials is raw materials exploration and exploitation in the Arctic.

DTU belongs to the Northern regional hub (so-called Co-location centre) which has its head quarter in Luleå.
