UCN University College of Northern Denmark, Denmark
Ole (Dan) Faaborg is Director of International Relations at UCN University College of Northern Denmark. Ole was a Bologna promoter for the Danish Ministry of Education from 2000-2008.
He has a background in Applied Linguistics and in Strategic Management and Innovation and in programme development for the Danish Government. His 27 year’s experience in international education and posts for the EAIE, SPACE, SIEC, EDEN, ORBIT and other organisations have given Ole a sound basis for strategic and structural work in organisations. Key issues Ole is concerned with are grassroots approaches, member benefits and good synergetic atmosphere in professional sections. He believes that emphasis should be on a member-driven line of benefits and services, not only for the conferences, but available throughout the year. Ole is known by members for being the efficient organiser of networking events and as the network songwriter.
