Dr. Martin Nohlen

The most interesting cases? For me, those are the ones where we work with clients and colleagues as a team. When working in a true team, you often identify what can give you the edge for an inventive activity: synergies that someone alone wouldn’t be able to create. As well as being successful, this is fun.
