Anders Bjarklev is President at DTU, President at ATV - Chairman of Danish Rectors' Conference (DU). He says: It is my firm belief that technology and innovation play a key role in the solutions we develop to the challenges facing the world today.
But I am also convinced that technology cannot do this on its own – nor should it. Technology should and must be coupled with a broader understanding of society, equality and ethics.
Hans Christian Ørsted founded DTU in 1829 with the mission to develop and create value through the technical and natural sciences for the benefit of society.
Today, we still follow this mission at DTU. In collaboration with business and industry partners we create value-adding technology for people. This is also reflected in our international research environment and world-class education.
