Current PhD projects

A substantial part of the centers research is carried out by our PhD students.
The research group was established in 2003 and 37 PhD theses have since been completed.
Most of the PhD projects are supported by the hearing-aid industry, the Danish Research Foundation, private foundations and DTU.


We currently have 22 running PhD projects. Each student has his/her own project, but since we all do research within hearing, there are great opportunities to discuss ideas, approaches and results with other students and colleagues. Besides being financially supported by the industry, there are also possibilities to collaborate with national and international industrial partners and hospitals. Hearing research is a very multidisciplinary field and we provide a large and high-quality international network to other research groups. We are involved in several formalized European networks and it is common for our students to spend some time abroad (typically in Europe or the U.S.A) as a part of their studies.
