DTU Health Tech was established 1st of January 2019.
Our aim is to consolidate and develop world-class research within Health Technology. The overall goal being to improve the population’s health and well-being.
Collaboration with partners from industry, health care, academia and end users is very central to DTU Health Tech. Without interdisciplinarity and insights from all the stakeholders in the healthcare eco-system we cannot fulfil our vision to provide technology for the health and wellbeing of people.
The program of the day provides a perspective on collaboration.

|16:00-16:30||"A future created by a New Technology: Ethics and Science - and implications for Healthcare, Industry and you & me" by Britt Wray, PhD, Ass. Partner DareDisrupt, Author and Broadcaster|
Britt Wray will talk about The Fourth Industrial revolution and the blurring boundaries between different disciplinary sectors. She also argues that collaboration should extend further than industry with clinicians, researchers and patients etc. – and include artists and designers, because such creative actors are able to engage new modes of thinking about science and tech for the public and for experts when working interdisciplinarily with scientists and technologists.
We hope that you will join us for an afternoon of networking and reflection.
