Focus on cross-disciplinary input with professional depth and societal relevance

Danish Sound Cluster's work must make a difference across the sound industry's sectors, professional disciplines and standards. We put our efforts into projects and agendas that expand the industry's professional depth, provide solutions to socially relevant challenges and put more professionalism into play. Four professional working groups with representatives from the business community and knowledge and research institutions, work on qualifying and prioritizing ideas for focus areas that the members can be inspired by and contribute to.

Healthcare & Welfare

This group works with sound tech innovation in the field of welfare and health, and looks at the development of solutions to increase the population's quality of life and state of health. 

  • How do we diagnose, prevent and treat hearing loss, and what technologies are under development in this area?  
  • How can we in the health care system use sound and music to alleviate somatic and psychiatric disorders? 
  • What effect does noise reduction have on the physical and mental health of the population?  

The following experts participate in the group: 

  • Abigail Kressner (DTU)
  • Dorte Hammershøi (AAU)
  • Jakob Christensen-Dalsgaard (SDU)
  • Jesper Bünsow Boldt (GN Hearing A / S)
  • Kira Vibe Jespersen (AU, “Music in the Brain”)
  • Lars Bramsløw (Eriksholm Research Center)
  • Lise Schmidt Aagesen (Danish Standard)
  • Morten Løve Jepsen (WS Audiology Denmark A / S)
  • Nikolai Bisgaard (GN Hearing A / S)
  • Ole Fogh Olsen (Oticon A / S)

Environmental Sound Solutions

This group works with innovative solutions to reduce internal and external noise - in traffic, at work and in the home. Efforts are also being made to strengthen the focus on the role that acoustic conditions in buildings and urban environments play in sustainable urbanization.  

  • How do we monitor, treat and prevent noise - inside and out?  
  • How can we improve noise reduction in renewable energy sources, e.g. wind turbines, heat pumps and ventilation systems? 
  • How do we strengthen the interdisciplinary collaboration of acoustics in urban environments with the actors in construction that are traditionally outside the sound industry?  

The following experts participate in the group: 

  • Anders Olsen (Vibratec)
  • Birgit Rasmussen (AAU - CPH Building Research)
  • Cheol-Ho Jeong (DTU Elektro)
  • Claus Blaabjerg (Hottinger Brüel & Kjær)
  • Douglas Manvell (DMdB)
  • Jakob Fryd (Danish Road Directorate)
  • Jens Oddershede (FORCE Technology)
  • Lucile Sarran (Velux)
  • Rune Egedal (Sweco Danmark A / S)

Creative Sound Solutions

This group's work focuses on how sound is included as a content, experience and communication element in digital media formats such as gaming, film, podcast, TV, music, radio, social media and digital streaming. The group's discussions involve profiles from the creative industry and researchers in the field, and they aim to bridge the gap between the creative and the technical. 

  • What is the latest sound technology development in Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality, and in what (new) contexts can it be used? 
  • How can technologies such as 3D sound, multichannel sound, AI and 5G be used to improve the sound quality and user experience? 
  • How do we develop intelligent equipment to effectively improve the sound quality of audio products when demand is increasing but fewer hours are set aside to produce? 

The following experts participate in the group: 

  • Brian Slott Kristiansen (Danmon Group Systems A / S)
  • Cheol-Ho Jeong (DTU Elektro)
  • Eddy B. Brixen (ebb-consult)
  • Lars Møllegaard Nørretranders (DR)
  • Lars Tirsbæk (Sonic College - UCSYD)
  • Morten Brandstrup (TV2 Danmark A / S)
  • Rune Palving (The Danish Film School)
  • Stefania Serafin (AAU - CPH)

Future SoundTech Solutions

This group works on how we integrate the technologies of the future such as AI, Internet of Things, Big Data and Industry technologies into sound technology products. Discussions include how these technologies can be integrated into algorithms, hearables, streaming platforms and other products. 

  • How do we best integrate new software in different user scenarios to create a pleasant sound experience, for example? 
  • How do we define good sound quality in the future? 
  • What does good sound mean for the user experience when it is an integral part of a new technology? 

The following experts participate in the group: 

  • Birger Schneider (CHAMAJ Consult)
  • Clément Laroche (GN Audio - Jabra)
  • Efren Fernandez Grande (DTU Elektro)
  • Kristian Krämer (Alexandra Institute)
  • Jeremy Marozeau (DTU Hearing Systems)
  • Jonas Raun Hansen (GN Hearing A / S)
  • Mads G. Christensen (AAU)
  • Mikael Vest (NTP Technology A / S)
  • Morten Kroman (WS Audiology)
  • Nick Zacharov (Force Technology)
  • Niels Pontoppidan (Eriksholm Research Center)
