Merki, Manuel

Vice Presidium, Projects & Processes


For me, social value is what serves the long-term survival and further development of humanity. Our best tools to strive for knowledge and progress are the modern sciences. However, we cannot understand the world with data alone. Only the classification in a world view gives meaning to human knowledge. This also includes understanding, defending and, where necessary, adapting social values. My involvement with Reatch is intended to help ensure that scientific knowledge takes a strong stand in decision-making situations.

As a project and agile team leader, I know some of the challenges in achieving common goals. My background in several startups should help us continue to grow sustainably. Reatch is unique with its member base of scientists* who are willing to volunteer their knowledge to social development. In the interaction with our members I use my experience for new projects.
