Collaboration with the Health Sector

DTU Health Tech's vision is to develop solutions for people before, during and after they are patients.  

We develop technologies that can change and make prevention, diagnostics, treatment and rehabilitation more efficient to benefit patients and the health sector. In this connection collaboration with the health sector is a pivotal component.

Our research often takes departure in a close collaboration with doctors and health professionals. We typically involve clinicians and staff from practice in our research projects and gladly make ourselves available for solving challenges in the health sector, where we can contribute to develop new, innovative solutions.


Our collaboration with external stakeholders often takes departure in our flagships, which are six strategic areas, where we work with new technologies and solutions in collaboration with industry and the health sector. Read more about our 6 flagship areas.
