Sustain DTU Conference

Sustain 2018 - November 29-30th 2018


Delivering Sustainable Solutions

- The future of R&D - How do we assess and ensure technological innovation gives optimal impact?

Sustain 2018 is the meeting place to learn about the latest developments and creating better technological solutions to sustainability challenges.
You will meet the experts in the field from academia, industry and organizations. In a series of parallel sessions you can pick your topics of interest to learn, connect and contribute to creating better solutions.
The summit has as overarching theme the quest for ensuring quality and developing collaborations to ensure the technological innovation provides the best possible solutions and optimal use of resources.
Plenary sessions will discuss the emerging targets and schemes for sustainable research and development, and the stronger emphasis on public private partnerships with the Sustainable development goals agenda and how this will guide the future R&D strategy for sustainable innovation.

Now is your opportunity to provide ideas and suggestions for the conference topics. We are still open for suggestions for sessions. If you'd like to suggest a topic for a session you are interested in organising or participating in please write to us at, preferably as soon as possible  so we can begin a dialogue to define the best possible content in relation to other sessions.
