Keywords Stakeholder inclusion | Technology Foresight | Research and innovation strategies for industrial sectors

Since the mid-1990s my research interests have focused on two areas: Research and innovation strategies in industrial sectors, and Technology Foresight. Currently, my research interests focus on:

  • Understanding and development of processes for joint research and innovation strategies for industrial sectors. In particular, I am interested in priority-setting and stakeholder inclusion.
  • Further conceptual development of the concept of Innovation System Foresight.
  • Technology Foresight; in particular methods for stakeholder inclusion.

I have been involved in numerous research and advisory project in Danish, Nordic, European and international contexts. Together with colleagues and partners, I have carried out technology foresight and research projects on technologies such as wind turbines, fuel cells, hydrogen energy, sensor technology, nano technology, and robotics & cognition and on industrial sectors such as agri-food, facilities management and science & technology parks. Besides this, I have supervised several doctoral students and taught foresight at international courses and seminars for both public sector officials and academic audiences.

During most of my academic career I have been engaged in management and administration of research group. From 2016 to 2019 I served as deputy head and in 2018 also as acting head of DTU’s Department of Management Engineering. Currently, I am head of the Innovation division of DTU’s Department of Technology, Management, and Economics.
