Our objective is for DTU to be among the five leading technical universities in Europe; and our ambition is to attract the best researchers and research students from both Denmark and abroad, and maintain DTU as an attractive collaboration partner for other leading research environments worldwide.
DTU promotes promising fields of reasearch within the technical and the natural sciences, especially based on usefulness to society, relevance to business, and sustainability. Further, DTU systimatically develops its experimental facilities as a parameter in international competition.
To ensure that research at DTU is conducted at a leading international level, we continuously use internationally recognized measurements of publications and citations to measure our research performance against the world elite among other technical universities offering natural science.
In this way, the University guarantees the quality of its contribution to the international competitiveness of the Danish business community, and Denmark’s overall societal ambitions of being a leading high-technological society with a high level of welfare.
