Founder and Board Member, Open Knowledge Foundation Germany
Marcus lives in Munich and has spent most of his professional life working on “digital openness” topics. He is a co-founder and board member of the Open Knowledge Foundation Germany and a principal consultant for OKF in the UK. Before, he was for roughly three years an IT strategist for the City of Munich where he designed and led Germany’s first Open Government/Open Data project called MOGDy (which won an EPSA best practice award). As a researcher, he worked intensively on software patents and open source software (PhD). Since then, he has been running his own lecture on “digital sustainability” at ETH Zurich.
