Frank Kresin is Programme Manager at Waag Society. My interest is the use of new technologies for societal goals, eg. empowerment of (disabled) users, enhancing education and development through the use of modern techniques, improving communication with and between institutions. I try to use partnerships and collaborations that combine the knowledge, experience and passion of the participants, working towards shared goals.

I have experience in the conception and development of several public Internet Services, like www.uva.nl, www.keuzevakkengids.nl, www.geheugenvanalmere.nl and www.uitinalmere.nl. Next to this, I'm an experienced project and programme manager, specialised in innovative usage of new technologies, currently employed at Waag Society. I have a background in Artificial Intelligence and knowledge of e-learning standards, applications and practices, and experience in film and documentary making.
