Franz Josef Allmayer


franz-josef-allmayerI have a background in biomedical engineering, health policy, planning, financing and development. I am based in Dubai but have worked in all continents except Australia. My main interests are health, development, and disruptive innovation.

Why I joined FutureLab Europe? I joined FutureLab Europe because it is imperative to bridge the gap between citizens and governments by bringing back active citizenship.

Active citizenship is (important because) it legitimises democratic institutions as it allows for a deliberate representation of communal collaboration for the benefit of an entire population, taking into account all discerning views yet reaching a consensus that serves to the benefit of all.
