Under the auspices of the Technology Cooperation Project in Region Zealand, DTU Link helps regional businesses to identify a technological challenge and develop or test an innovative solution. DTU Link matches businesses with the appropriate research skills at the University, providing access to advanced technological, product, and production development facilities.

DTU Link also offers a commercial validation of the developed technological concept and business development as required. In addition to the targeted innovation process, regular networking activities are held for participating SMEs to ensure anchoring of innovation and knowledge sharing between the businesses.

While the Technology Cooperation Project in Region Zealand is anchored in the incubation environment DTU Link at Risø Campus, it nevertheless encompasses the entire University’s research competences.

The project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund for the period 2018-2020.
