The Danish Academy of Technical Sciences (ATV) is an independent, member-driven think tank. ATV's vision is that Denmark shall be one of five leading Science and Engineering regions in the world – to the benefit of future generations.
In order to achieve this objective, ATV is undertaking a number of activities to the advantage of businesses, knowledge institutions and society as a whole.
ATV has 800 members who are research directors, business executives, leading researchers and experts within their field.
ATV is a private non-profit organisation and does not receive any direct public funding. ATV is financed by fixed, yearly membership fees from private businesses, universities, foundations, and other knowledge institutions (the ATV-partners) as well as project sponsorships.
ATV's activities are presently focused at five themes:
Sustainable Technology, Natural Resources, Infrastructure, and Energy
Digitisation and Big Data
Industrial Production of the Future
Science and Engineering in the Educational System
Health, Disease Prevention, and Health Technology
