Specialists and Board of Directors

-

We are a research startup that has progressed from a desk of one doctor to a work community of ten skilled experts in five years.

We are a politically independent, non-profit, multidisciplinary research institute. We want research data to be of use and to help understand the complex phenomena of our time.
