DTU wants its research and knowledge to benefit society and that the University is a preferred national and international provider of scientific advice. Scientific advice which is one of DTU’s core services is a term for the research-based services that DTU provides to national and international authorities and companies.

DTU’s role in DroneSOM project

DTU Space will develop methods of gravimetry from drones based on experience from many years of airborne gravity using strapdown inertial sensors. The drones to be used are high-payload, long range drones, to allow the installation of gyro and accelerometer units.

DTU will also lead the WP on professional development and education go hand in hand with the natural interest in novel, alternative and highly innovative methods, and tools. DroneSOM takes advantage of its diverse consortium, mirroring the dynamic innovation arena in Europe. We address this challenge by targeting the formation of future professionals (MSc and PhD students and postdocs) as well as current workforce in the industry.

  • Course on drone geophysics targeted at MSc and PhD students
  • Workshop on SOM and Artificial intelligence in geomodelling
  • Workshop on drone geophysics for professionals (geophysicists, exploration industry experts)
  • Half a day workshop about IPR and European perspectives on innovation – for all partners of the consortium
