The Danish Technological Institute is a self-owned and non-profit institution.
They develop, apply and disseminate research- and technologically-based knowledge for the Danish and International business sectors. As such they participate in development projects which are of use to society in close collaboration with leading research and educational institutions both in Denmark and abroad.
On top of this they carry out consultancy and standardisation services, which contribute to a dynamic and harmonious development of society. Finally they play their part in strengthening the Danish labour force’s competences together with educational institutions and through the Insitute’s own courses, certification and lectures.
