Dtu management - research


DTU Management conducts excellent research in the intersection between management, technology and economics. We focus on relevance and are in close cooperation with companies and public authorities.

We collaborate with leading technical universities around the world e.g. MIT, Technion, EPFL, ETH, TUM and TUDELFT.

We create knowledge that improves the welfare, productivity and sustainability in the society. A key element is the role of technology and its interaction with industry and individuals.

Our research concerns leadership, organizational development, product development and design, decision support systems, risk analysis and strategy, optimization and control and regulation and policy analysis.

We are based on engineering and social sciences. We cover a variety of sector and theme fields such as energy, environment, climate, health, food, transportation, logistics, construction and services.

The department’s research is divided in four divisions: Innovation, Management Science, Sustainability and Transport. Furthermore, the department hosts a UN Collaborating Centre. The UN DTU Partnership conducts research, policy analysis and advising on a global scale.
