Her Majesty the Queen of Denmark is the Patroness of the Danish Technological Institute The objective of the Danish Technological Institute is to be an active partner in the evolution of industry and society as a developer and mediator of technological innovation. "Technology" embraces technical, managerial and business related financial expertise as well as practical use of the new knowledge in all three areas. We build-up, maintain and disseminate knowledge and services, which gives improved competitiveness, sustainable use of resources, increased employment and qualification, as well as a reduced cost burden for society and companies. We co-operate with development and research centres in Denmark as well as abroad in order to find and interpret the latest knowledge - and we co-operate with business organisations, educational institutes and authorities in order to disseminate and utilise this knowledge quickly and effectively.
