Flemming Besenbacher

Flemming Besenbacher is a professor of Nanoscience, Aarhus University, and was the founding director of the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Center (iNANO) from 2002-2012. Prof. Besenbacher is chairman of the Carlsberg Group, the Carlsberg Foundation, the Tuborg Foundation, and Aarhus Vand A/S. Prof. Besenbacher is also deputy chairman of Innovation Fund Denmark and board member of Unisense A/S. In 2016, Prof. Besenbacher was appointed chairman of the Danish government’s Advisory Board for Circular Economy and was also appointed a member of the Danish government's Digital Growth Panel. He also sits in several advisory boards related to the UN Sustainable Development Goals and he is chairman of the non-profit organization UNLEASH.

Prof. Besenbacher is an international leading scientist within the field of nanoscience, and he has published more than 700 scientific articles in international journals such as Science and Nature. He is one of the most cited Danish scientists with 35.000 citations and a H-factor of 95. Furthermore, prof. Besenbacher is honorary doctor at 14 Chinese universities and he has received several distinctions in Denmark and abroad for his research, for instance “The Chinese Government Highest International Scientific and Technological Cooperation Award” of the People's Republic of China.

He is foreign member of the Chinese Academy of Science and holds the title of Knight First Class of the Order of Dannebrog.

Paul Denny

Paul Denny is a Senior Lecturer in Computer Science at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. His research interests include developing and evaluating technologies for supporting collaborative learning, particularly involving student-generated resources, and exploring ways to motivate students to engage within online learning environments. One of his developments, PeerWise, is a freely available web-based tool that instructors can use to support collaborative student learning across a wide range of disciplines. In November 2018, PeerWise was the Overall Award winner and the "ICT Tools for Teaching and Learning" category award winner at the QS Reimagine Education Awards, an event attracting entries from 1200 international projects.

The tools that he has developed have had a wide impact, being used by more than half a million students in 80 countries and helping to form a global community of educational researchers, more than 80 of whom have published their research as a result. To support this community, he has delivered more than 60 invited talks and workshops, focusing on both the practical use of technology in the classroom and approaches for evaluation. He has been recognized for contributions to teaching both nationally and internationally, receiving New Zealand’s National Tertiary Teaching Excellence Award (2009), the Australasian Association for Engineering Education Award for Innovation in Curricula, Learning and Teaching (2009) and the Computing Research and Education Association of Australasia Teaching Award for Outstanding Contributions to Teaching (2010).

Berit Eika

Berit Eika became Prorector for Education at Aarhus University on 1 June 2014, moving from her previous role as vice-dean at the Faculty of Health, which she had held since March 2011. She attained the responsibility of developing medical teaching and education, which e.g. led to the establishment of the AU Centre for Health Sciences Education.

She graduated as a medical doctor (MD) in 1986 and received her PhD degree in 1994 from Aarhus University. Her thesis examined the role of bladder diseases related to diabetes and was partly carried out during a research stay in 1991 at University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia (US).

From 1996 Berit Eika took on the position to revise the AU degree programme in Medicine and simultaneously completed two master programmes; MA in Health Informatics at the University of Aalborg and MA of Health Professions Education, MHPE, at the University of Maastricht.

In 2005 she became the first Danish medical professor of Health Education and has supervised numerous successful PhD students in Aarhus, and has been an external examiner on PhDs at various universities in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and the Netherlands.

Bjørk Hammer

B.Hammer

Bjørk Hammer has introduced online learning methods at the mathematics and physics departments of Aarhus University over the past five years for which he was awarded the Aarhus University Anniversary Foundation Prize of Honour for Pedagogics in 2017. His current research interests are machine learning employed in solving materials science problems in conjunction with quantum mechanical computer simulations. B.

Hammer holds a PhD in Physics from the Technical University of Denmark (1993). He has worked at Fritz-Haber-Institut of the Max Planck Gesellschaft, Berlin, Germany, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, US, and Aalborg University, Denmark, before coming to Aarhus University in 2000.

Sanjay Sarma

Sanjay Sarma is the Fred Fort Flowers (1941) and Daniel Fort Flowers (1941) Professor of Mechanical Engineering at MIT. He is the first Dean of Digital Learning at MIT. He co-founded the Auto-ID Center at MIT and developed many of the key technologies behind the EPC suite of RFID standards now used worldwide. He was also the the founder and CTO of OATSystems, which was acquired by Checkpoint Systems (NYSE: CKP) in 2008. He serves on the boards of GS1, EPCglobal and several startup companies including Senaya and ESSESS.

Dr. Sarma received his Bachelors from the Indian Institute of Technology, his Masters from Carnegie Mellon University and his PhD from the University of California at Berkeley. Sarma also worked at Schlumberger Oilfield Services in Aberdeen, UK, and at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratories in Berkeley, California. He has authored over 75 academic papers in computational geometry, sensing, RFID, automation and CAD, and is the recipient of numerous awards for teaching and research including the MacVicar Fellowship, the Business Week eBiz Award and Informationweek's Innovators and Influencers Award. He advises several national governments and global companies.
