Innovation and public sector authorities
DTU delivers scientific advice of the highest academic quality in key development areas, where innovation and green growth are other significant perspectives.
DTU experts' advise to the authorities constitutes an important contribution to innovation in society. Based on the latest research-based knowledge, DTU provides development-oriented decision-making support within a given sector.
Innovation can also be supported in a more closely targeted manner when analyses of innovation and growth potential are included directly in the scientific advice that DTU supplies to the authorities.
DTU has good experience with public-private innovation (PPI) partnerships, where close interaction between public and private sectors ensures that research results are converted rapidly into innovation and growth within a prioritised area.
Moreover, DTU promotes innovation through the provision of expert advice in connection with innovative tenders. In this context, a limited part of the tender becomes the object of a special innovation which allows suppliers to develop new technologies and solutions. This may for instance involve a spatially limited area, a technically limited system, or a specific process under the tender, which can advantageously be made the object of a special innovation input.
