Denmark has an established research structure in the field of robotics and welfare technology with three major research groups at the University of Southern Denmark with main Campus in Odense (SDU), at Aalborg University (AAU), and at the Danish Technological University in Copenhagen (DTU). The research groups at SDU, AAU and DTU are involved in a substantial number of European and national projects. The Danish Technological Institute (DTI) in Odense takes the role of organizing the transfer between universities and companies. All organizations mentioned above are partners in the national innovation network RoboCluster. 

This workshop will allow future partners in EU projects find their right partner in Denmark. Participants can prepare by taking EU project ideas to the workshop.


Moderator: Bjarke Nielsen
