Lars Bramsløw, Senior Scientist at Eriksholm Research Centre 

Lars is a research engineer and project manager with the Augmented Hearing research group at Eriksholm Research Center (part of the Demant group). Lars is known in the field for his ambitious, thorough approach and has worked in several advanced concepts and research topics over the years. Lars leverages his experience to manage collaborators and different projects done at Eriksholm. His dream and highest motivation is to make the world’s best hearing aid. 

Lars started in Eriksholm in 1991 where he did his PhD in sound quality in hearing aids, predicting and modelling sound quality in hearing aids. After that, he left the company for a few years to do other things on Danish radio among other ventures. In 2000, Lars came back to the Oticon headquarters, and worked with audiology development for hearing aids until 2012. After 2012, he returned to Eriksholm to do what he does today – more in-depth and independent research and concepts in the hearing field.
