Grants

The DTU Grants support the maturation of DTU-developed technology towards commercial applications with roughly DKK 12 million, primarily funded by DTU and as part of the DTU PoC Fund funded by Region Sjælland. Hence the programme is for DTU employees exclusively.

The programme consists of two types of grants: Discovery Grants for pre-projects and Proof of Concept Grants (PoC) for projects aiming at successful implementation of the technology in an established company or a start-up.

The programme also prepares grant receivers by offering training in commercialisation and developing a start-up.

DTU Tech Transfer is also the contact point for applicants from DTU for the InnoExplorer Programme started by Innovation Fund Denmark and implemented in close collaboration with universities.

When being in The DTU Grant programmes, grant receivers can make use of the full DTU Start-up and commercialisation eco-system offering competence development, mentoring programmes and exposure to further funding opportunities.
