High Tech Summit 2018

DTU’s High Tech Summit is attracting considerable interest from the business community who have already bought or booked 60 of the 70 stands.

DTU is continuing last year’s success with its High Tech Summit, which is the leading university-based tech exhibition in the Nordic region, and which gives participants research-based technological insights.

The summit is strongly supported by the 25 public and private-sector partners who are behind the High Tech Summit, and is also attracting massive interest from the business community, which has so far bought or booked 60 of the 70 stands.

“We’re very pleased with the intense interest, which demonstrates that the High Tech Summit serves as an important networking venue for researchers, entrepreneurs, organisations, investors, and businesses. We’re working flat out to prepare this year’s themes within the fields of digitization, robotics, and artificial intelligence, which are relevant for every aspect of Danish business, and which this year will be focusing in particular on health, foods, and biotech,” says Bjarke Bak Christensen, who heads DTU Bioengineering and is project director for High Tech Summit 2018.

The focus this year has been chosen because of the huge potential of digital technologies for the entire health and food areas, where a significant competition parameter is the ability to process and analyse the large volumes of data which are being produced today at all levels in companies.

Those participating in the High Tech Summit can look forward to a broad academic programme with lectures, debates, workshops, etc. under themes such as Industry 4.0 and automation, big data and artificial intelligence, the Internet and things as well as smart foods and smart healthcare.

High Tech Summit 2018 takes place on 10-11 October at DTU Lyngby Campus, where more than 4,000 visitors, 700 companies and 250 start-ups are expected to attend.
