Fremsyn. Strategi. Innovation. Energiteknologier
Per Dannemand Andersen (PDA) forsker i fremsyn, strategi og
prioritering inden for forskning, teknologi og innovation samt i
teknologisk innovation på energiområdet.
During the latest 15 years my professional
interests have focussed on three areas: a) Technology foresight, b)
Strategy and strategy processes in industrial sectors, and c)
Innovation in energy technologies.
Technology foresight. Together with colleagues and
partners I have carried out technology foresight exercises on areas
such as energy technologies, sensor technology, nano technology,
and robotics & cognition but also industrial sectors such as
agri-food and facilities management. Besides foresight as a
practice my research interests have included development of
methodologies for foresight and the position of foresight exercises
within policy development processes.
Strategy and strategy processes in industrial
sectors– in particular sectors related to energy
technologies such as wind energy and other renewable energy
technologies. Since 1995 my interests has focussed on goal oriented
approach to strategies and participatory processes ensuring
commitment from industry, academia, interest groupings and public
Innovation in energy technologies. My interest stems
back from my PhD thesis where I studied innovation processes in the
Danish wind turbine industry. This lead to an interest in learning
curves for energy technologies. Recently, my interests focus on
different types of indicators for technological innovation in the
energy technology sector.
Across these three areas, I am currently interested in how
universities and industrial sectors jointly can develop strategic
