Preben Holst Mogensen

I hold a Master’s degree in Computer Science from Aarhus University in 1989 and a PhD degree also from Aarhus University in 1994.

I have been employed at Aarhus University from 1989 to 2014, with the exception of a position at Lancaster University from 1995 to 1996. I have worked at the Alexandra Institute as Distinguished Participatory Designer since October 2014.

Since 1997 I have primarily worked as a project manager and user involvement expert on a number of national and international research and development projects.

The major projects include:

  • The Prehospital Patient Record (PPJ) where we (CSC, Judex, Alexandra Institute, Atea, RadioCom) develop digital and mobile records for the entire pre-hospital units (call centres, ambulances, emergency medical cars, emergency units, etc.)
  • @aGlance (2008-) with the support from ISIS Katrinebjerg and the Central Denmark Region we have worked with (and still do) support for overview (at-a-glance) and cooperation for the emergency personnel at major events.
  • The EU project PalCom (2004-2007), in which we designed and implemented a platform for pervasive computing with focus on Palpable Computing.
  • The EU project Workspace (2001-2004), in which we worked with new forms of support for distributed collaboration and advanced visualizations.
  • The Dragon project (1997-1998), in which we developed a prototype of a Global Customer Service System for Maersk Line.

In terms of research I have always focused on Participatory Design and Computer Supported Cooperative Design, and during the last 15 years also on Pervasive Computing.

I work primarily with IT support of control and coordination of preparedness and health care more generally.

Right now I am deeply involved in the development of the Prehospital Patient Record (PPJ) where we (CSC, Judex, Alexandra Institute, Atea, RadioCom) develop digital and mobile records for the entire pre-hospital units (call centers, ambulances, emergency medical cars, emergency units, etc.)

User involvement
I have more than 20 years’ experience with intensive user involvement and 'participatory design' in many different domains.

Innovation & project management
I have extensive experience with management of experimental projects with focus on innovation, but also with focus on how to make things work.

Support for overview & cooperation
Comprehensive theoretical and practical insight into how to support control and coordination for the emergency personnel in general. This is the main specialization area of the @aGlance project.
