Writing about science and society, educated as mathematical biologist and educational researcher, now mainly freelancer and always looking for new ideas. Currently I work at the Danish newspaper Ingeniøren (ing.dk), and in the spare time I do small publishing projects combining science and science fiction with learning games and the arts. The most heavy and best book I have written is on the philosphical history of the natural sciences - ERGO - naturvidenskabens filosofiske historie. Other interests include rediscovering Berlin, chess and a bit of the usual desktop activism. You can also have a more comprehensive look at my CV.

Project Management and Selected Sponsored Projects and Grants (last five years)
- Research Manager of the Research Unit Science, Technology and Learning (STL) at Learning Lab Denmark (08/01-02/07). Robin started the STL research unit to creates new ways for learning math, science and technology in our society. The unit engages in research and development projects, where theory and praxis go hand in hand in order to create new learning tools, new theoretical knowledge, and new learning methods and principles. The group consists now of approximately twenty people, such as student helpers, secretary, phd-students, developers and researchers. See homepage.

- Initiator and Research Director of the Center for Learning Games (02/05-02/07). The goal of Center for Learning Games is to become an international leading center for the understanding and development of learning games, where the theoretical understanding of learning games is developed and explored through the practical design of gamebased learning tools. See www.centerforlearninggames.dk.

- Project Coordinator of Laboranova (03/05-02/06). An EU-project (IST call 6) on creating a collaboration environment for strategic innovation. The project is a collaboration between 19 European partners with a budget of Euro 7 mio. The vision of Laboranova is to change existing technological and social infrastructures for collaboration and support knowledge workers in sharing, improving and evaluating ideas systematically across teams, companies and networks.. See www.laboranova.com.

- Work Package Leader of ChangeMasters (09/06-02/07). An EU-project (e-Ten) on validating and customizing an edutainment services for change and innovation management. The project is a collaboration between eight European partners with a budget of Euro 1.3 mio. ChangeMasters is an innovative, highly involving, effective and easy deployable life-long learning service that provides adults with key skills and competencies in the organizational change and innovation management area. My job is to lead the workpackage on a detailed market research and target segment analysis.

- Project Initiator and Principal Researcher of Hazardcards (02/04-present). Hazardcards is a combined debating game and art piece. It communicates science and technology by presenting known and unknown technological accidents in a new and provoking way. By playing Hazardcards, the user acquires knowledge of the complexity and governance of technological systems and furthermore, the cards aim at creating debates about what society regards as acceptable risks in relation to technology. See www.hazardcards.com

- Principal Investigator of Scope (08/06-02/07). The project Scope aims at creating an assistant tool for searching for information on the internet. People often have difficulties finding relevant information and the aim of the project is to develop material and processes that can interactively teach and guide people about how to find appropriate information.

- Project Manager of Exhibit Øresund project within LLD (09/06-02/07). Exhibit Øresund is an EU-funded project to create innovative ideas for science communication within selected universities in the Øresund region. See www.xibit.info

- Project Manager of Open Cards (05/06-02/07). Open Cards is an open card game creation format, which may be used in schools as an alternative form of presentation and reflective analysis of any subject. See www.opencards.net/

- Project Management of World Class Math and Science (08/01-08/04). The project intends to identify new concepts in education and greater flexibility in teaching methods aimed at improving general education standards so all students are capable of understanding and participating in mathematics and science subjects at a higher proficiency level than before. See www.matnatverdensklasse.dk/

- Project Manager of Homicide (03/03-11/03). Homicide is a criminological game of investigation for lower secondary education. Pupils get to play investigators and learn how criminologists and forensics experts use hard science as tools. Homicide is an IT-supported role-playing game for entire classes. The murder cases can only be solved through a combination of scientific knowledge with analyses of the suspects movements, alibis and motives. See www.drabssag.dk.

Welcome to my repository where I keep my stuff for reference. It contains many of my writings and publications, links and project notes. I have been collecting my writings on the web for many years, also before I changed to this blogger format. Therefore, instead of using the archive menu on the right, you will need to browse through the items in the menu bar on the top in order to find older texts, such as newspaper articles, books and academic publications.
