Since 2010 the Technical University of Denmark has had a partnership with Roskilde Festival
Every year Roskilde Festival attracts some of the worlds biggest stars and most promising artist, 75.000 guest and 25.000 volunteers. Every year DTU engages more than 100 students with projects at the festival, that not only gives access, but also pays off ECTS credits.
In participation with a counsellor, the student creates a project with reference to one of the many technical challenges that exists at the festival. During the festival the student executes his or her project, while also presenting it for festival guests and other parties of interest.
Several projects from previous years are now associated with the festival as a regular part of if. The mobile charging concept Volt, and a generator running on used fry-oil are examples of that.
This year the ambition for the partnership is clear - to make more projects go follow the same path.
