Since 1999 I work as a business developer and consultant with broad experience in Fortune TOP 500 industries, and the service sector as well as in public administration and cultural and educational organizations internationally, from Europe to China.

Graduate at the University of Salzburg I studied Communication, Management- and Social Psychology and Economic- and Social History. In 2004 – 2006 I supported the development of the strategic focus “ICT&S – Information and Communication Technologies & Society” at the University of Salzburg, Austria, as the Center Manager. I am currently part-time university lecturer and thesis supervisor at the Upper Austria University of Applied Sciences Campus Steyr and Hagenberg, the CAMPUS 02 University of Applied Sciences Graz in Austria, and the Danube University Krems in Austria, teaching 10 subjects in six different curricula, including

  • entrepreneurship,

  • innovation and ethics,
  • future studies,
  • applied systems, complexity, and network theory,
  • large systems interventions,
  • public relations,
  • information and communication technologies,
  • and digital products and markets.

I am one of the co-founders and active ambassadors of the international Change the Game Initiative , where paradigm changers meet. We push boundaries connecting innovation, leadership, and ethics.  I am personally interested in Ethonomics, leadership, innovation, entrepreneurship, social innovation, systems research, and design thinking.

I am an active member in several international scientific communities dedicated to social and technological innovations and systems science and research. I serve JeDEM – eJournal of e-Democracy and Open Government as managing editor, and served the international peer-reviewed “tripleC – Cognition, Communication, Co-Operation” Open Access Journal for a Global Sustainable Information Society as managing and consulting managing editor.

I am married and father of two kids, I enjoy training at the gym, photography, movies, good music, delicious food and vine, travel around the world, meet inspiring people, listen to engaging stories, sometimes tell some, push my own boundaries of my thoughts, or even overcome my mind, play serious games, and enjoy my lifetime with people who I care about.

And this is my research & studies blog to collaborate with my students. You will find more about me at about.me/bstefan.
