DTU Fotonik will take part in the new initiative Open Entrepreneurship with Prof. Jes Broeng in the front seat.
The initiative Open Entrepreneurship will tackle the challenge of bringing knowledge, patents and new inventions from the university to the industry. A closer collaboration between the academic world and the industry could ultimately mean that ground breaking products will see the light of day much faster.
Prof. Broeng is greatly inspired by his recent stay as guest researcher at UC Berkeley. Experience indicates that success is best achieved by commercialising research under the management of external entrepreneurs who have knowledge of the market and experience with running a company, he explains.
The initiative will unite 4 universities, including DTU, ITU, AU and AAU.
