Virtual Innovation Sprint

27 – 30 August 2020
4 challenge tracks – one mission. Let's re-open a sustainable circular society!

DTU is hosting a Global Virtual Innovation Sprint to nurture new agendas, new development projects, and new partnerships to life. We are in the era of a unique possibility for radical change. A momentum and opportunity window we cannot afford to miss. The goal: To accelerate a transition into a Post Covid-19 sustainable circular society.

Registration closes on August 26th.

Why It Is Important

The year 2020 has challenged our humanity and underscored the need for accelerating the momentum and societal awareness directed towards not only COVID-19 Crisis, but also Climate Crisis.

As such, this is a pivotal time to build new ideas and approach the reality of reaching the SDGs by 2030 and Climate Neutrality by 2050.

Why You Should Join

You will join DTU in our efforts to embrace the unique possibilities we have in the re-opening of the society. 

Bring new agendas, new development projects, and new partnerships live to accelerate the  transition to a sustainable circular economy.
