New Partnership with Contractbook!
We are really excited to present a new collaboration here at ITU. We at Startup Programme, ITU's student startup incubator and accelerator, have entered into a partnership with Contractbook, which is a digital contract management platform where you can manage the entire lifecycle of your contracts in one flow.

Our startups will get a full license – paid by us – for an entire year that they can use to manage all their agreements and contracts and also to sign contracts with nemID in a compliant manner. 

Anyone can also signup and get contract templates by the way, so we do recommend you check it out even if you’re not part of our programme!
Unannounced Evacuation Exercise at EHK
In relation to the evacuation exercise last Thursday (November 12) at DR, FM was not able to coordinate the date for this exercise in due time with DR, so that we could announce it in the weekly edition of ReadIT.

In the future, FM will make sure to coordinate the time for these exercises in due time, so that it can be announced in ReadIT as we usually do. 
The exercise lasted only for approx. 10 minutes; it is also the goal in the future to complete the exercises in less than 10 minutes.

Among other things, it was noted that the voice notification is only in Danish. This will be corrected as soon as possible.
