Getting there

The meeting will take place at DTU in the meeting center in the DTU main administration building. DTU is placed in Lyngby a northern suburd of Copenhagen. In Lyngby there is basically only one hotel, the Scandic Eremitage, and unless they have a special offer this is not a cheap hotel. From the Scandic Eremitage it is a about a 15 minute walk to the DTU campus.

Alternatively one might stay in Copenhagen with its wide range of hotels in different price categories. Staying close to one of the main stations will give you roughly 20 minutes of transportation to get to DTU. Main stations are: Copenhagen Central, Vesterport, Nørreport, Østerport.

For getting to DTU from Copenhagen there are basically two options.

  1. Take the 150S or 173E bus from Nørreport. This bus goes to DTU (and further north) along the Northern motorway. It will stop at a bus stop close to DTU on the motorway (see picture below). From here it is a 5 min walk to the DTU meeting center.
  2. Take a suburban train (S-tog) from any of the main stations to Lyngby. Here you can use the A or E line. From Lyngby station you need to take a bus to DTU. Take 180E, 190 or 300S to the main DTU bus stop. From here it is a 2 min walk to the DTU meeting center



When you get to the main building of DTU use entrance A and take the first door on the right, then you enter the meeting center of DTU. Here the Industry Days will be in room S9 which is the first room on the right as soon as you enter the meeting center.
