In order to fulfill the ambitious target to develop new sustainable high performance composite materials, the consortium consists of the following partners.

Danish Technological Institute     

The Danish Technological Institute is a self-owned and not-for-profit institution. We develop, apply and disseminate research- and technologically-based knowledge for the Danish and International business sectors. As such, we participate in development projects, which are of use to society in close collaboration with leading research and educational institutions both in Denmark and abroad.

Danish Technological Institute was founded in 1906 and in the year 2015 the annual turnover was 1.1018 mio. DKK.

The involved people in Dreamwind from the Danish Technological Institute are among others: 

  • Mikael Poulsen, Ph.D., Center leader for Chemistry & Biotech
  • Helle Svendsen, Ph.D., Section leader for Process and materials chemistry 
  • Jens B. Ravnsbæk, Ph.D., Consultant

Aarhus University      


Aarhus University is a world leading research and education institution in chemistry/nanotechnology, being ranked no. 83 in the world (Leiden ranking, see here). More than 400 candidates and 200 PhD’s are educated within physical science and engineering every year. In Dreamwind, Aarhus University is represented by two research groups from Department of Engineering and Department of Chemistry/iNANO center, respectively, which are world leading within surface science and the development of new polymer materials. In Dreamwind, the research groups will contribute with the newest knowledge in order to develop new smart materials that can change shape or be disassembled after use.   

The involved people in Dreamwind from Aarhus University are among others:

  • Kim Daasbjerg, Professor at Department of Chemistry and center for iNANO
  • Mogens Hinge, Assoc. Professor at Department of Engineering
