Esben Oestergaard

CTO
Universal Robots A/S

As the Chief Technology Officer at Universal Robots, I am responsible for the enhancement of existing UR robots and the development of new products. I am one of the founder and inventors behind the UR robots. During the years from 2001 – 2005, as researcher and assistant professor in robotics and user interfaces at University of Southern, Denmark, I was part of creating the foundation for a reinvention of the industrial robot. In 2005, I founded Universal Robots together with two of my research colleagues. Besides my work as CTO, I am participating in national research projects and am also an external examiner at several universities in Denmark.
