Danish Technological Institute – It’s all about innovation
The Danish Technological Institute (DTI) is an independent, not-for-profit institution, which transforms new knowledge and technologies into benefits for industry and for the world at large. Our objective is to identify and then satisfy requirements for innovative products and future growth industries.
We hereby submit our 2012 financial statements for your review. As is clear, our economic outlook is strong and healthy and provides a secure foundation for our new visionary strategy for the upcoming 2013–2015 period. We are looking ahead towards further strengthening our contribution by delivering even more innovative solutions in response to the major challenges facing industry and the world today.
The global economy offers untold opportunities for the development and application of high-value innovation.
This is made possible through wide-ranging technological progress in fields including nanotechnologies, materials, robotics, biofuels and sensor technologies, to name but a few. The more intelligently we are able to combine and utilise these new technological innovations, applying them to the needs of industry, the better our possibilities will be of creating and retaining jobs and of maintaining continued progress.
The ability to access and deploy advances in technology from international sources is a key factor for the competitiveness of any company. However, this is not always so simple. The disruptive nature of technological advance and changing patterns of global technological innovation are a constant challenge for SMEs. DTI has demonstrated that it can help them find their way to success. More than a century of experience and the broad interdisciplinary expertise of our 1,100 employees are our foundation. During the past year, through global partnerships and cooperation with a view toward Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, we have strengthened our international presence. With one third of our revenue generated from international activities, we are able to offer clear insight in support of businesses as they approach this coming global transformation.
DTI is geared to take full advantage of the strategic opportunities arising from today’s globalised economy, and convert them into new sources of future growth and progress.
We hope you will enjoy this brief sample of the many projects we undertook for our customers in 2012.
