How do you manage a company in a complex world, and how can you effectively use 3D printing in the production? These are some of the topics we will discuss at the DTU Summer Academy, which is a continuing education concept combining theory with practice and networking.
During the week, leading DTU researchers and business professionals share their latest research findings and present myths, facts and business models through a number of short modules, project managers and decision makers themselves will come closer to solving their own business challenges.
The ambition is:
- to create new ideas on how the participants can implement innovation and technology into their business plans
- to create new collaborations between DTU and the business community.
Behind the education concept is Karina Rothoff Brix, Director at DTU’s Center for Lifelong Learning: “If we are to work purposefully at creating innovation for society, we need to reach out to company project leaders and decision makers who do not have a professional foundation in technology. That’s why we want to create a platform where different professions cross-fertilize each other’s views and thus create a basis for innovation. This is the essence of the Summer Academy.”
Design your own course
This will be the second time DTU is behind this continuing education concept, involving researchers and DTU’s departments. At the moment three different DTU departments contribute to the different modules with presentations about ethics, sustainability, 3D printing and artificial intelligence (AI).
The participants will have the opportunity to combine a course of up to three different modules; the total of 11 modules are listed at the Summer Academy’s website. All modules will be held in English.
Covering a gap in the market
“Many companies are uncertain whether they should approach 3D printing, artificial intelligence or sustainability to innovate. Our ambition is to give the participants the opportunity to experiment, and in that way, based on their own knowledge and new findings, find the answers themselves” says Karina Rothoff Brix adding:
“The DTU Summer Academy is innovative in its own right, no continuing education concept provides scientific facts and at the same time discuss the business challenges of the participants companies.”
