EU’s work programme Horizon 2020 (2018-2020) has been launched. This is good news for researchers but also for European citizens. As something new, the research programme has direct links to visions formulated by more than 1000 European citizens through the project CIMULACT.
The Danish Board of Technology Foundation, in collaboration with partners in the EU-funded SATORI project, created the first international pre-standard.
DBT Foundation asks the question as we are organising a number of public debates across Europe on the dual uses of A.I. and robotics.
We participate in European R&I projects as coordinator or partner depending on the needs of each particular project. Over the years we have built a strong network of excellent partners with whom we are lucky to work on a regular basis. At the same time we are always looking for new acquaintances just as we are always eager to see new perspectives on the relations between science, innovation, public policy and the views and values of citizens.
The DBT is coordinating an international consortium awarded a prestigious European Union Horizon 2020 (H2020) research and innovation grant worth €2 million and focused on nanotechnology development.
During the conference on Denmark’s land use in the future, hosted by the Danish Board of Technology Foundation and The Danish Parliamen’s Committee for Environment and Food, the final report met with a favorable reception by the participating politicians and organizations. The politicians from the Danish Parliament and municipalities all recognized the need for reconsidering the great many wishes and plans for future utilization of areas, and the 12 recommendations of the projects were thoroughly discussed.
