Research Projects

DTU Environment has an extensive collaboration with private companies and public institutions on research projects financed by funding from the Commission of the European Union, the Danish Innovation Foundation, governmental agencies, regions, research foundations, industry, international organisations etc.

 

Collaboration Projects

DTU Environment collaborates with external partners on research and development projects within the department’s focus areas, where the project is co-funded by the external partner and the department. The external partner and DTU Environment maintain the IPR to their respective contributions to new knowledge and can publish the results.

Consultancy Assistance

If a company wants DTU Environment to participate in a research and development project, where the IPR stays with the company, the work will be categorised as consultancy assistance. DTU Environment only enters agreements which have a scientific relevance related to the department's focus areas, and only if the task is not better solved by consulting companies.

Scientific Advice

Research-based consultancy covers all types of tasks DTU performs for public authorities such as ministries, governmental agencies, regions and municipalities as well as international institutions and organisations. Tasks cover risk assessments, monitoring, mapping and contributing to responses tor §20-questions.

Student Projects

Many BSc and MSc students make projects over a specific topic as specialised course - often in collaboration with companies. Both Danish and foreign students can take part in the project, and the project work can be done in Denmark as well as abroad. Companies and institutions are welcome to contact DTU Environment with suggestions for future shared student projects.
