Dr. Martin Etzrodt

Innovation Incentivation Specialist

Martin has a background in chemistry and biomedical research and was trained in Munich, Heidelberg, Lausanne and Boston.

As a postdoc at ETH Zurich he focussed on stem cell differentiation and cell signalling events at single cell resolution. Martin aims to change the currently prevailing antiquated infrastructure for scientific communication and the wrong incentives for scientists as well as high entry barriers for the public to access scientific information. In the end of 2016 he began exploring the decentralised web (“web3.0”) as a means to change this situation.

He currently holds a position as principal researcher at the Akasha Foundation, which aims at building advanced global knowledge and research architectures based on Ethereum and the interplanetary file system.
