Visiting Professor, Aarhus University International Summer School

This project’s research has focused on Information Systems researcher impact on the scholarly field, expanding on the measures used to incorporate into online communities, knowledge management systems, and open data contributions. Hirotoshi Takeda’s cultural background of being Japanese, long standing connection with Canada, and connection with the Francophone world has helped expand his IS research impact and open data impact to such as the US, Canada, France, and Japan. A long term goal of this project is expansion into Scandinavian countries starting with Denmark by teaching AU Summer University at Aarhus University.


My various academic projects can be gateways to partnerships with various academic institutions in the North Atlantic region. I hope to leverage my experience to expand these collaborations with industry representing the North Atlantic region. I hope to expand these experiences to students and to create connections for students to learn, collaborate, and hopefully visit various countries and institutions in the North Atlantic region.
