This year’s theme was Building European Tech Resilience. In a time of war, geopolitical uncertainty, pandemics and vulnerable supply chains, it is important to focus on how the technological development is dealt with. Digital Tech Summit is an obvious occasion to discuss the foundation of the digital technologies that must contribute to solve the challenges.

We thank you for the many exciting presentations that focused on different perspectives of this year’s theme, and for meetings with researchers, students, startups, companies, NGOs, who believe that digital development is a prerequisite for solving some of society’s most urgent issues – from climate change to democratic challenges.

Together with the Pioneer Centre for AI, CBS, DTU and Danish Life Cycle Cluster, we focused on the development of digital technologies for the healthcare sector, which is dominated by a record high labour shortage. On the main stage, we assembled a strong panel for a discussion of how to navigate the challenges of implementing groundbreaking AI in the healthcare sector.
At our stand right in the middle of our eight university partners, we had visits from researchers, students, startups and established companies who wanted to know more about DIREC’s work in strengthening digital research across the universities and the business community – the private and the public sectors.
Finally, we focused on exciting DIREC projects within hybrid work, digital technologies for urban water management, Greentech and smart cities and the role of robotics, drones and AI in sustainable farming.
Special thanks to our contributing business partners and researchers involved in the DIREC projects.
We look forward to spreading much more exciting news about all the exciting research that is contributing to change the world for the better.

World-class research with a solid Danish footprint – with the aim of making a crucial difference for companies and society.
