DTI Robot Technology
Forskerparken 10F, 5230 Odense M, Denmark
The Danish Technological Institute (DTI) has been developing, applying and transferring technology to industry and society since 1906.
DTI’s main activities within robotics are located in Odense in the Centre for Robot Technology where we are actively involved in many robotics projects in primarily manufacturing, service, construction, food, health and agricultural robotics.
Our focus is innovation – applying new research results and robot technologies to create robot solutions for the markets of tomorrow.
I is a leading European robotics innovator with a staff of more than 40 robotic experts within industry and service. We provide individual consultancy, actual working industrial solutions, courses for both blue- and white-collar workers covering various aspects of robotics, and networking opportunities, as well as performing applied research and development.
DTI is core innovation partner within robotics in MADE – the Manufacturing Academy of Denmark which focuses on future production and involves all Danish universities and 200+ Danish companies. DTI is also core partner in Odense Robotics which is the national robotics cluster in Denmark. Start-ups are supported in the Odense Robotics start-up hub that is based in DTI’s premises. DTI also host the Danish Robot Association DIRA which has 200+ members with focus on implementation of robotics.
DTI has been acting as a robotics DIH for several years across multiple domains.
