In 2015, she was a part-time research associate and public outreach coordinator at Center for Fundamental living Technologies (FLinT) at the physics department at the University of Southern Denmark. Part of her work was co-organizing the scientific workshop An Emerging Technological and Societal Transition: Preparing for the Post-Industrial World at the Lorentz Center in Leiden, The Netherlands.
Through Next Scandinavia, Lene Rachel Andersen lectures, leads workshops, hosts events, and works as a consultant developing scenarios of the future. She has worked on projects as diverse as a theme park and gamification of school materials. As a futurist, she could easily tell you about consumer trends in the coming decade, but what she really wants to talk about is the future of rule of law, human rights and democracy and how to make life meaningful in the future. What is meaningful growth?
