Radical Innovation Sprint

The deadline for submitting ideas to the Radical Innovation Sprint 2019 has been reached. The Radical Innovation Team look forward to reviewing the submitted ideas.

Do you have a wild idea ready to be explored for its potential? Unlock your creativity by taking part in the DHRTC Radical Innovation Sprint. Together, your idea and our knowledge can lead to new research and results.

At Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre we want to investigate all ideas that might improve the production of oil and gas in the Danish North Sea – no matter how crazy or wild they might seem.

DHRTC’s Radical Innovation Sprint offers funding to people who have radical ideas with the potential to change the oil and gas industry. Over the last two years, 25% of submitted radical ideas were funded.

Applicants might be new to oil and gas and even practice a discipline that is normally completely unrelated to the oil and gas industry. You might be familiar with oil and gas research. Regardless we would like to engage with you to combine your idea with our knowledge.

An external committee will evaluate the submitted radical ideas anonymously and recommend which ideas to fund. The committee consists of researchers, people from the oil and gas industry, neighbor industries and people with an innovative mindset.

Ideation Workshops

The Radical Innovation Team goes on road trips across the partnership to host ideation workshops in order to develop your ideas. We are open to collaborate with anybody and support you throughout the process.
