Network Insights for Collaborative Sustainable Production

Interactive, visual and data-driven decision-making support for companies, industry associations and consortia

About this project

How can we unlock the innovative potential of sustainable production in Denmark?

In a rapidly changing global environment, and among fierce competition, efficient inter-organisational collaborations are essential to support sustainable production and unlock innovative potential. With this in mind, the Engineering Systems Group at DTU Management Engineering set themselves the ambitious goal of developing an open big-data platform named “Net-Sights”. This platform seeks to provide companies, governmental agencies, and research organisations with tools to proactively identify new opportunities for inter- organisational collaboration through cutting-edge network thinking. Net-Sights is supported by Industriens Fond and fed by the invisible networks of relationships and capacities at the heart of Denmark ́s industrial base, the same underlying networks that explain the success stories of the likes of Novo Nordisk, A.P. Møller-Maersk, and Vestas.
