Experienced Project and Event Manager

Danmarks Tekniske Universitet (DTU)

DTU Skylab is looking for a Project and Event Manager with 3-5 years of experience for a large number of high-level events that leave a strong impact on the participants. We perform startup support, company collaboration and educational activities, and our more than 100 events a year often combine these areas.

About DTU Skylab
DTU Skylab is DTU’s living lab for innovation and entrepreneurship. We match state of the art technology and science with an ambitious and open community, where students, researchers and corporate partners meet to exchange knowledge and develop visionary solutions for real world challenges.

At DTU Skylab, the convergence of technologies and talent from different fields, combined with an entrepreneurial mindset, creates a unique culture of learning and innovation for everyone involved in our community.

Over the last 8 years, DTU Skylab has developed into a 5000 m2 living lab for innovation and entrepreneurship with offices, teaching facilities, developer hall, prototyping workshops and labs. We are an innovation house with young startups and new technical solutions, but we are also a learning environment taking part in educating the next generation of creative engineers, who want to make a positive impact.

What you’ll do
As our new Project and Event Manager, you will plan, organize and execute a huge number of large events in close cooperation with our event team, other project managers, corporate partners, and other stakeholders.

You will run our major events such as

  • The EuroTeQ Collider Track, where Skylab with European partner universities and other DTU entities develop challenges and innovation sprints (defined by students, companies, researchers and more) resulting in an annually recurring EU Wide EuroTeQ-athon (both virtual and physical event). This project will take up most of your time and involves coordination with all the project partners at DTU and across the EU.
  • Oi-X, our open innovation programme that connects students and corporations, to jointly solve societal or industrial challenges.
  • DTU Startup Day that showcases and promotes a wide selection of the most promising current startups originating from the DTU Startup ecosystem for companies, partner organizations and investors.

We expect you to have a firm focus on keeping the event on track with content, activities, scheduling, deadlines and budget. This includes:

  • Working closely with all stakeholders including our communications manager to create communications plans, delivering engaging content pre, during, and post the event to the relevant audiences
  • Development of the event programme and content, engagement of speakers etc.
  • Ensuring that events are completed smoothly and stepping up to resolve any problems that might occur
  • Development and execution of new Event Concepts targeted at our key stakeholders: students, researchers, startups and corporate partners.
  • Encouraging and supporting community driven events in order to enhance the quality and the outcome for the benefit of all stakeholders.

Who you are
We are looking for an experienced Event and Project Manager who has a proven track record of running multiple large projects and events from a-z, and who knows how to liaise between many stakeholders in order to optimize the value for all stakeholders. You are much more than a skilled event artisan – you are also a firm project manager and true expert in developing inspiring content and engaging activities. At the same time, we are looking for someone with an appetite for experimenting with new formats, engagements and design-methods than can deliver valuable experiences for our stakeholders; students, researchers and companies alike.

Bringing in fresh ideas and organizational skills, you leave nothing to chance. As a proper multitasker, you love joggling many events and projects at the same time in close cooperation with various project managers, team members and different stakeholders.

In addition, you:

  • Know how to navigate and act in a complex organization
  • Have proven experience of running engaging and inter-active virtual events
  • Have excellent communication skills in both verbal and written English including proven experience of communicating effectively on different platforms to various stakeholders
  • Are a Creative problem-solver and you love developing new solutions for challenging situations
  • Thrive working in a high-paced environment with tight deadlines while keeping several events up and running.
  • Have knowledge of KPIs and marketing techniques for event management

Who are we?
We are roughly 50 people divided in 4 teams, and you will be part of our Community and Operations Team consisting of eight people.

We have an informal and warm work culture, and we can both laugh, party and be really ambitious. We love our users and partners, and we love to tell the stories of their fantastic projects. The projects range from rockets, snail farming, loud speakers, digital services, student communities, hackathons and large international summits.

You will have a challenging and independent job in a very dynamic environment with both suits and welding masks. You will become part of a house in rapid development and you will get a unique chance to influence our development.
