Eriksholm’s mission provides clear guidance about what we aim to achieve. At the same time, it provides a high degree of freedom for us to pursue avenues of research in a wide range of topics, as opportunities and potential benefits arise and change over time. You will find that we have organised our activities into a number of focus areas.
Some of these are instantly recognisable as topic areas of long-standing importance, which any serious hearing-aid research group should be working on. Others reflect areas which have been the subject of a more unique focus at Eriksholm.
In practice, Eriksholm’s research activities are linked across themes, and many studies address issues in multiple focus areas simultaneously. Browsing the descriptions of our studies will lead you via links into other focus areas. This reflects the multi-disciplinary nature of the work we are doing, and the strength which we achieve by having people in the same group working on diverse questions.
We currently work within the following three areas of focus: Personalized audiology, Cognitive hearing effort compensation, and Intent controlled hearing technologies. To get an explanation of our current three focus areas, please watch this video where Senior Director James M. Harte introduces them.
