My contribution to the Board:
I am moved by the holistic view of digitization. Technology is not the I am moved by the holistic view of digitization. Technology is not the solution, but always just one – albeit important – building block, embedded in innovation ecosystems and human societies across national borders.
With my global SILKROAD 4.0 network of experts for emerging technologies, I can evaluate the social and market-related effects of the respective acute issue, including the embedding in infrastructure and national and international policies (with a focus on the EU and Asia).
I also incorporate my extensive experience in leading consortiums of public bodies, private companies and universities in complex technology programs. I bring my knowledge – collected through practical application – about current future technologies (including contemporary social media communication) and sensitivity in dealing with people and psychological processes.
