MobileActive08: Jørn Klungsøyr

In this interview Jørn Klungsøyr, who works as researcher and developer at the University of Bergen, demonstrates how their EpiHandy system allows setting up large-scale surveys at much lower costs than traditional surveys. He points out the importance of connecting workflow and forms by using mobile phones and explains how this was incorporated in the EpiHandy project.

Jørn Klungsøyr further talks about their recent collaboration with Makerere University in Uganda and with the open source project OpenRosa.
