After Paris, Brussels and Warsaw, the MIT Innovators Under 35, organized in partnership with L'Atelier BNP Paribas, was in Berlin, to award the German young innovators.
Decker and his colleagues wanted to deliver a more sustainable solution. Inspired by online social networks and communication platforms, they developed a software that enables employees to help shape ongoing processes.
Even non-it experts can configure our system according to their needs.
Ansgar Jonietz was awarded Social Innovator of the year, for Washabich, a free online service which silplifies the jargon of medical findings.
In 2011, he developed the idea for a translation service for medical findings. Now, his team consists of a total of 1,300 medical students and doctors. They are volunteers and to date have translated approximately 26,000 medical findings into a language that can be easily understood by patients.
We plan to improve doctor patient communications this way - so that our translation service someday become superfluous.
Congratulations to the winners!
The next stop will be in Spain, in November.
