The IDE group takes multidisciplinary approaches in its research endeavor, standing at the intersection among creativity, innovation, design, and entrepreneurship.  


The IDE group aims at contributing to the society at large with creative solutions to address some of society´s grand challenges by means of (1) educating a new generation of engineers who are fully equipped with entrepreneurial mindset and skills; (2) providing cutting-edge knowledge and competences on design engineering (both product and service design) with innovative tools and methods to support industry and economic growth; and (3) managing creativity and technological innovations with a process of value creation and capture, interacting within the context of holistic systems where stakeholders are highly involved.

IDE is responsible for a large number of courses at DTU at BSc. (Eng.), MSc. (Eng.), and PhD levels across the domains of innovation, design engineering and entrepreneurship. IDE is also a knowledge center where our researchers conduct world-class research using various research methods and creating societal impacts. Drawing upon its research excellence, IDE is always ready to actively engage in providing our collaborating industries with creative solutions to engineering and managerial challenges.
