I am Senior Lecturer at the University of Applied Sciences Burgenland, Department Business Studies, in particular for International Sustainable Business, Digitalization and Innovation Ecosystems.

I still serve the Bertalanffy Center for the Study of Systems Science (BCSSS) in Vienna as Managing Director in transition. Together with the University of Applied Sciences Burgenland we intend to organize the European Meetings on Cybernetics and Systems Research, again.

I have broad international cross-sector experience as an entrepreneur, business and policy advisor, and university lecturer focusing on entrepreneurship, leadership, digitalization, systemic innovation and systems design addressing sustainable development.

I have taught at several universities and professional management training programs in Austria, Germany, Slovenia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Italy, France, Belgium, Norway, Finland, UK, Australia, Vietnam, Taiwan, China and the USA.

Through the Bertalanffy Center, I established the Circular Economy Forum Austria, the largest multi-stakeholder platform to support the transformation to a circular economy in Austria.

From 2016 to 2018 I was appointed as Special Adviser to the European Commissioner for Transport.

I was Secretary General and Vice President of the International Federation for Systems Research (IFSR), the largest global umbrella organization of systems research organizations in the natural, social and technological sciences, as well as systems engineering.

My current work focuses on the regenerative economy and digitalization to tackle complex challenges on the way to the so-called Next Economy, especially the circular economy.

Additional I am volunteering as Board Member of Nalandabodhi Austria. Nalandabodhi is a global community to inspire individuals and create kind communities offering the timeless wisdom and boundless compassion of the Buddha in today’s world, founded by my dear teacher and friend Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche.
