Personal profile

Research

Alfred Birkegaard - Collaboration Specialist, Novozymes + PhD, Philosophy of Science

Alfred Birkegaard’s main field in Novozymes is to examine how the use of new technology enables new collaborative organizational structures that create the foundation for new applied knowledge epistemology. A focus area of his is working with experiments that integrates the social and cultural dimensions within new collaborative practices.


In his PhD-dissertation in a collaboration between Novozymes and Roskilde University he explored how a new collaborative paradigm is arising in traditional sectors such as industry, academia and new maker spaces. This new era of collaboration is clearly visible in Silicon Valley, where so called disruptive technologies are invading a variety of sectors such as biotechnology and education, causing new ways of working, creating and learning. From the Ph.D. a large network of researcher and practitioners in Denmark, California and India have grown and this post doc project is partly developed in interaction with this network. Communication is an important aspect of transdisciplinary collaboration as a part of a knowledge and innovation creation process. He therefore also work and study, both theoretically and in practice, different media (text, film, art and social media through the internet etc.) forces and pitfalls in relation to collaboration.

Alfred has pursued a two-tier career in academia and as an entrepreneur. He holds a Ph.D., MA and BA degrees in philosophy and science from Roskilde University and University of Copenhagen. In 2012 he was Visiting Scholar at the Department of Philosophy at Berkeley University. Alfred has also been head of two collaborative organizations (Kollaboration 2007-2011)  (WeCollaborate 2009-2012) and The Collaboratorium.net  

Alfreds founded also Open Media Lab at Roskilde University (2015) and co-founded the student research collaboration platform The Thirdroom
