“I’m excited to announce to you a fantastic new project, Steinbeis Donau Zentrum Vienna, my new company, my new project, flowing out of the Danube Strategy.

I was 3 years project manager at Steinbeis, Baden-Württemberg and after the conclusion of the Diplomatic Academy of Vienna I have decided to become an entrepreneur. Therefore I will work hard to continuously prove the importance of technological transfer illustrated by Steinbeis Model over more than 40 years.
My center will be the link between Eastern and Western-European industry and scientific research fields. The activities are oriented to development long-term business connections in the fields of funding opportunities, market research – outsourcing to low cost countries, transfer of ITP, access to Eastern European markets.
Vienna must be seen as the city where all Central European Easter countries are connected, representing the gate for East-West Cooperation.

Special thanks to Jürgen Raizner, who continues being my loyal partner and mentor.
Special thanks to RubenVarda, who recently transferred to me the special function of Executive Secretary at the eurotex.org, the European Centre for Knowledge and Technology Transfer in Brussels.

My idea was received with applause at the Danube Business Week in Vienna and I am very much looking forward my new projects.”
