Scientific advice

Offering scientific advice to public sector authorities, industries, and international institutions is one of DTU’s core activities.

In fact, no less than 1/5 of all DTU employees work with advice and thus contribute significantly to knowledge transfer and informed decision-making in society.

With a combined turnover of more than EUR 107 million (nationally and internationally), DTU is one of the main providers of scientific advice in Denmark.
