New name for DTU Science Park
The IASP member science park formerly known as Scion DTU (Denmark) has changed its name to DTU Science Park.
400 different names were considered during the process before deciding on DTU Science Park, a name that clearly states the purpose and describes the community includes more than 260 companies.
“Our new name explains who we are and what we do. That makes any additional explanation unnecessary. The name reflects our connection to DTU, illustrates that we are an innovation community and the sum of more than 260 high tech companies”, said Steen Donner, CEO of DTU Science Park.
For DTU Science Park the community is crucial. It plays a pivotal role in creating growth and development for the companies, with its vision for the future based on one overarching ambition:
“We want to position DTU Science Park as Denmark’s leading innovation community for deep tech companies developing new technologies. We focus our resources and knowledge to create an even greater environment. This enables the companies to reach their goals easier, faster and more cost-effective.”
Deep tech companies are characterised by the fact that they work with advanced industrial technologies with a strong research base. They have a lengthy and costly time-to-market process, and require significant amounts of funding compared to other technologies.
“We understand deep tech companies and the challenges typically faced. Therefore, we are proud of our community which supports the companies and creates the necessary connections. With our new name, this focus will be even more prominent,” said Steen Donner.
