Svein has more than 20 years of experience as a project manager for various IT projects. Most of these projects have been about the use of IT in public sector (e-Government). The projects involve both munipalities and government agencies.
In e-Government the research has mainly been concentrated about the quality of digital services, and as a consequence of this also critical reflections on the broader question of what exactly is a digital service?
In 2011 Svein discovered Bitcoin and the underlying blockchain technology and gradually saw its potential also for further development of digital solutions in public sector. Svein has since followed the development. Starting with Bitcoin technololgy the interest has gradually grown to comprise the intersection of technology and economy (and society) and this has led to enrolling in a masters degree program of Digital Currencies at the University of Nicosia.
