Independent researcher and designer focusing on the impliications of technology on society. Research fellow with the PrimaVera Program for Research in Information Management (http://primavera.feb.uva.nl), advisor to the Hogeschool van Amsterdam, labdirector with Performing Arts Labs (UK) (www.pallabs.org) and member of the Dutch Council for Culture and the Arts (http://www.cultuur.nl).

"My research interest is focused on the design of presence and the design of trust in social interactions between people, in organizations and in larger social and political structures. I use methodologies from the social sciences as well as from the design discipline. Having a profound theoretical interest I find it a challenge to bridge scientific insight into other domains. When 'making things happen' in a design process I am convinced this only works when people involved contribute."

In 1994 Nevejan co-founded the Society for Old and New Media. The Waag Society, as it is known today, is an independent media lab and a knowledge center with a specific interest in the future of the public domain. Among many projects that Caroline Nevejan initiated at the Waag are The Reading Table for Old and New Media, which won the Rotterdam Design Prize 1997, Demi Dubbel, a curriculum game for 10 year olds, Internet in the Sky, a research project with Europe Online about the future of the internet, and Brandon, the first virtual piece of art acquired by the Guggenheim museum in New York.
