Technical University of Denmark (DTU)
  • Founded in 1829
  • The famous Danish scientist H.C. Ørsted was the
    first Rector
  • In 2001, the Technical University of Denmark
    achieved autonomy
  • In 2004 the science and industry park SCION was
    incorporated into DTU

On 1 January 2007, DTU merged with Risø National
Laboratory, the Danish Institute for Food and
Veterinary Research, the Danish Institute for
Fisheries Research, the Danish National Space
Center, and the Danish Transport Research
Institute. The new Technical University of
Denmark is a broadly founded, business-oriented
technological university where research goes hand
in hand with education, innovation and advisory
functions for government authorities.

Entrepreneurship not mentioned but an
element we emphasize
Fundamental elements for (modern) universities
DTU Collaboration with industry and
technology transfer
In a DTU-context innovation is research based
progress preferably sustainable at an
external partner aiming at value added growth It
can happen via common projects with companies
(student projects, collaborative projects etc.)
or by transfer of IP (know-how, inventions,
Objectives for innovation
  • DTU will have a coherent system of innovation
    that includes research, education, patenting,
    licensing, industrial cooperation, company
    incubation and activities related to science
  • DTU will offer a program of continuing and
    further education with broad coverage that
    disseminates the newest insight into the
    technical and natural sciences to companies
    professionals and individuals

What is Entrepreneurship?
Entrepreneurship is "the process of looking at
things in such a way, that possible solutions to
problems and perceived needs may evolve in
venturing." Saskatchewan Government Ministry
of Learning
venture (plural ventures) A risky or daring
journey or undertaking. Here a risky commercial
undertaking with an upside - a so-called hockey
stick -

Sarahs idea Network Survivability
Network failures affect our society, and should
hence be avoided or rapidly recovered from
through smart network design and efficient
recovery mechanisms.
  • Making optical networks resilient to failures in
    a dynamic way (restoration)
  • Developing algorithms and methods to achieve
    efficient restoration,
  • Evaluating the possibility ofapplying network
    restorationtechniques in todays and
    near-future networks, possibly patenting some
    of the findings, developing a software product

Lars Ts idea Digital control of switching
power converters
Digital power management can reduce power
consumption in processor units and other
equipment by controlling the voltage as a
function of processor load
Pros and Cons of an Innovation PhDSarahs view
  • Pros
  • Ones research work may be directly applied in a
    new product or company, which is very motivating
  • Chance to learn about the economic aspects of
  • Coaching by entrepreneur experts (i.e. DTU
  • Scientific curriculum can be extended with
    courses related to entrepreneurship, IPR,
    business economy, etc., which gives a broader
    scope and understanding
  • Focus on potentially patentable ideas from the
    start of the PhD study
  • Cons and Challenges
  • Extended workload (the innovation part comes as
    surplus to standard PhD work)
  • Difficulty to participate in industrial
    collaborations due to potential IPR issues
  • Not being able to research freely, all work
    should be related to potential product

  • PhD education
  • Focus should always be on high level research
  • Continue and improve information on
  • Make courses on entrepreneurship mandatory?
  • More Innovation-PhDs?
  • Important that the university environment in
    general is entrepreneurial and supports
    innovative efforts

  • The entrepreneur has an enthusiastic vision, the
    driving force of an enterprise.
  • The entrepreneur's vision is usually supported by
    an interlocked collection of specific ideas not
    available to the marketplace.
  • The overall blueprint to realize the vision is
    clear, however details may be incomplete,
    flexible, and evolving.
  • The entrepreneur promotes the vision with
    enthusiastic passion.
  • With persistence and determination, the
    entrepreneur develops strategies to change the
    vision into reality.
  • The entrepreneur takes the initial responsibility
    to cause a vision to become a success.
  • Entrepreneurs take prudent risks. They assess
    costs, market/customer needs and persuade others
    to join and help.
  • An entrepreneur is usually a positive thinker and
    a decision maker.

  • The aim of this course is to give a broad
    introduction to a series of non-technical-scientif
    ic subjects which are vital for the PhD students
    academic and private business career.The invited
    guest speakers will introduce their specialist
    topics and expand on these according to the
    specific needs of the target audience, e.g. how
    to secure a software patent, how to raise
    capital for private enterprise and
    dissemination of knowledge in research
    networks.The students will achieve a general
    knowledge and insight into related, relevant
    fields which will enable them to improve their
    overall communication, research and business
    competences in relation to their PhD
    studies.Each student will, according to own
    interests and goal, further develop (a) given
    topic(s) in relation to his/her PhD project in a
    short report.

What is Entrepreneurship? II
Entrepreneurship is the practice of starting new
ventures, particularly new businesses. No its
about new business areas mostly exploited by
existing companies Entrepreneurship is often a
difficult undertaking, as a majority of new
businesses fail. Wrong in high-tech
venturing Entrepreneurial activities are
substantially different depending on the type of
organization that is being started. Partly right
but venturing in a specific business area is
pretty much the same inside a company compared to
starting a new one Entrepreneurship may involve
creating many job opportunities. Yes indeed and
a lot of values too. Wikipedia - the free
