After managing EU research programmes for some 20 years, I am still very much interested in European Research Policy - and I hope that the small contributions I present on these pages can help stimulating a broad and open debate on this subject.
Please have a look at my THINK Pieces: short papers which - I hope - present fresh ideas and unconventional views about European Research Policy in general and the Framwork Programmes in particular.
I very much like the frank debate about these ideas with different audiences, as illustrated by some examples of my Presentations and Speeches.
Some pages relate to my home town Coburg (in German only) or present some pictures from recent railway travel.
If some of the material presented here triggered your interest, please feel free to contact me.
