With a ‘floating’ meeting room, workshops, and state-of-the-art IT facilities, DTU has transformed a former research building on Lyngby Campus into a key facility for start-up businesses and innovative entrepreneurs. Learn more about this unique facility.


DTU has a wealth of various research facilities ranging from ultra-modern laboratoriums to massive full-scale test facilities. Other facilities include test centres for wind turbines, ocean going vessels, and anechoic chambers.

DTU favours the hands-on principle. Students are not expected to just watch, they are allowed hands-on access to all facilities.


Located in building 307, Nanoteket is a student facility where advanced equipment is made available to DTU students and high school students.
