Current PhD projects


A substantial part of Hearing Systems research is carried out by our PhD students. The research group was established in 2003 and more than 50 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.

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. We have been involved in several formalized European networks and it is common for our students to spend some time abroad (typically in Europe or the USA) as a part of their studies.
