The Danish GTS institutes are not-for-profit organisations. They are self-owned, impartial, and independent of business or political interests, placing knowledge and facilities at the disposal of all businesses on equal terms. All profits are reinvested in infrastructure, facilities and the creation of new technological knowledge.
Approval by the Danish Ministry of Higher Education and Science is necessary to be designated as a GTS institute.
The GTS institutes range in size from fewer than thirty to over one thousand employees. In 2017, the total number of employees was 3,805. The institutes also vary in the scope of their international focus, with some institutes focusing primarily on disseminating new knowledge and technology within Denmark, while others are very international in their service offering and market orientation.
