DTU Space provides research-based advice and government services through our five research divisions and three centres. We advise on climate issues, earth observation, space infrastructure, space weather and security, maritime delimitation and sovereignty issues. Denmark and the Arctic have high priority. We also work with advice internationally. Among our partners are ministries, authorities, defence and space institutions. In this way, the department's efforts strengthen the authorities' decision-making basis within our area and benefit society.
