DTU's technical incubator, Skylab, which has been under construction for over a year, is today opening the doors to its new facilities for the first time.

Opening During COVID-19
Today's inauguration of the new premises was originally imagined as a classic reception. However, due to COVID-19 still being far too prominent in the Danish society, DTU and Skylab decided on not having any official inauguration event.

Instead, they decided to go ahead with the opening without any event, speeches, or welcoming reception. One effect of the very quiet opening will therefore be that the startups and SkyLab staff will be able to move into and use the new premises from today and onward.

The New Facilities
Skylab has expanded with 3 000 square meters, where the incubator now can offer even more works equipment and workspaces to the many startups partaking in the incubator program.

There is a full developer floor available with associated GMO laboratories and multilab, 3D print lab and workshops.

This has all been made possible by the generous donation of DKK 80 million given by the A. P. Møller Foundation.

Also thrilled to have partaken in the project, the building's architect Anders Wesley Hansen, Partner at Rørbæk & Møller Arkitekter, said: “It has been an exquisite pleasure to be involved in developing this project. They have created an innovative environment at the highest international level”.

"There is a very unique and vibrant environment,” Wesley Hansen added.

We believe that information should be free and will therefore never put up a paywall.
