Ladies and Gentlemen
Research and innovation, human security and sustainable development – these issues have been cornerstones of my professional and political life. Bridging the gap between scientific knowledge, innovation and decision making and implementation is a prerequisite for successfully committing politics as well as the corporate sector to comprehensive approaches that benefit all. I'm grateful to be able to commit myself to this challenge
- in the corporate sector as chair of the board of directors of econcept Inc. and as member of the board of directors of Ernst Schweizer Metallbau Inc..
- in the academic world as professor titulaire at the Institut de Hautes Etudes en Administration Public of the University of Lausanne, as member of the boards of the ETH Domain and of the TU Dresden and of the Comité stratégique of the University of Geneva.
- in the peace and security arena as president of the Council of Foundation of the Geneva International Center for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD).
Thank you for joining me in this endeavor - and thank you for visiting my website!
