Robotics event at DTU

Impending global robot - and technology advancements - what can we learn across sectors and geographical regions?

Technology is going to be used by more and more people – we want to inspire potential users of technology and ask questions: Should we be afraid of new technology? We offer experience sharing and networking. We want attendees to get insights into what is already existing and what is coming. This event is for potential users of technology and people who are interested in getting more knowledge and inspiration across different businesses. Our goal is to reduce the gap between Academia and Society.

Event is organized by Roboinsights
