Sustain DTU Conference


Sustain 2018 will be November 29-30th 2018!

Now is your opportunity to provide ideas and suggestions for the conference topics. Until August 1st 2018 we are 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 but no later than July 31st so we can begin a dialogue to define the best possible content in relation to other sessions.

The more information you can provide in your session suggestion, the better we can match it to the other content. For inspiration you can look at lasts years sessions, and please try to consider the following points:

  • Session title
  • A couple of lines describing the session content
  • Session objective
  • Likely participants you would expect to join
  • Likely Invited speakers for your session
  • Form of the session – it could be a mixture of talks, pitches, discussions, ideation, open innovation or some other format!
  • Your proposed chairing committee that will evaluate the submitted abstracts for the session and allocate talk/poster slots for them.
  • To the extent possible list the relevant SDGs (see last years sessions )

Sustain 2017 was Wednesday 6 December 2017 with over 300 participants going to 17 Sessions and 10 Ideation workshops that had 170 presenters with talks and posters!  

Sustain 2017 was fully booked and even a waiting list.
