“ What drives me is a kind of motto in life. You have to try to think the unthinkable. If we don’t ask questions, we don’t get answers. I think it is important to carefully analyze dogmas that exist in different areas of life. Even in the scientific field, it is not always credible what these dogmas convey to us – however, they occasionally erect intellectual fences that we must try to tear down.”

“Traditionally the cooperation in the healthcare industry is not a well established matter. Currently, there is also the fact that the cooperation between the analogue and digital health worlds must first be developed. Places of exchange are very welcome. Congratulations for your work and good luck in the future!”
