Engagements in my past:
The Co:llaboratory is an open think tank, bringing together actors from associations, academia, data- and consumer protection, Internet companies and policymakers to work on solutions to societal questions on Internet – initiated by Google Germany.
A steering committee coordinates the operations, which in its execution and administration is supported by outside consultants.
Main activity are thematic initiatives on specific topic areas that span a duration of several months. The participating experts from different sectors meet regularly for internal and public workshops. The circle of experts that participate in an initiative works autonomously and produces a final report with scenarios and recommendations that is presented to stakeholders.
Past initiatives have been on innovation, open government, copyright reform and privacy and the public sphere.
Kleos consultants give support in every step of online projects, from the overall strategy to concept development, webdesign, artistic management and production supervision.

Special attention lies on marketing and project management related issues like change management, as well as the coordination and training of all stakeholders.
Kleos IT@home offers technology training, consulting and maintainance services (with a focus on Apple systems) especially for technologically challenged Germans in the Heidelberg and accordingly the Rhein-Neckar-Delta region. All services can be delivered in the comfort of ones home.
Supercool School empowers people to start their own live online school. It is a movement to give people worldwide access to education by building a global school infrastructure.
Knowledge Entrepreneur explores and promotes the practice of knowledge entrepreneurship as well as a humanistic philosophy of entrepreneurship in general by reviewing the thesis „Knowledge Entrepreneurship in Universities: Practice and Strategy in the case of Internet based Innovation Appropriation“.
The research was conducted by Max Senges within the Information and Knowledge Society Phd Programme at the online university Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (Free University of Catalonia) and with the support of the Generalitat de Catalunya (beca predoctoral para la formación de personal investigador).
The thesis has been transposed to a suitable web-format (see index or mindmap )
but it is also available as one pdf-file or download the individual chapters, as a 42min. video of the PhD-Defense or as a podcast.
The research is rather trans-disciplinary. There are several thematic access routes to the work:
- Knowledge Entrepreneurship from a Higher Education Management point of view
- Philosophy of Entrepreneurship & Knowledge Entrepreneurship as Life Philosophy
- Internet based Innovation Appropriation
