I am a PhD Fellow at the University of Aarhus studying the transfer of technology with a special interest in the transfer of social robots from Asia to Europe. The title of my project is “Travelling Technologies and Their Cultural Luggage” due to be completed in 2018. The purpose of this project is to study the integration of social robots in healthcare in Finland and Denmark with a specific focus on how this involved embedded cultural values characteristic of technology transfer.
