Deputy Director Policy & Communication

I am the Deputy Director Policy & Communication at the Institute for Futures Studies, where I have special responsibility for the Institute’s policy-oriented activities. I am also the Institute’s spokesperson for issues not directly related to ongoing research projects.

I have worked as head of analysis at the Ministry of Social Affairs, with research concerning our future need for health and social care. I have also worked at the Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Employment and the Ministry of Education.

I am often engaged as a speaker at conferences, kick off’s and at training sessions. Often, I talk about how demographic changes, changing values and advances in technology which may have an impact on the future of our welfare sector. I also work with some of the Institute’s assignments, for example how IT affects the future of healthcare, or which schools that counteract mental illness.
