The health leaders network Sciana is growing

For its sixth cohort, the Sciana network has selected 18 leaders from the healthcare sector from Germany, the UK and Switzerland. The new fellows will work together on new forms of health, care and wellbeing whilst exploring and developing their leadership skills.

The new Sciana fellows come from different areas such as research and teaching, healthcare, health insurance, healthcare technology and consulting – and that is as it should be: because one of the network's main goals ist the cross-sectoral exchange of healthcare experts, the proverbial thinking outside the box, and across national borders. This is what the Bosch Health Campus, the British Health Foundation and the Swiss foundation Careum are committed to as initiators and program partners.

The six new Sciana fellows from Germany are Düsseldorf-based healthcare researcher Freia De Bock, PORT Managing Director Willingen-Diemelsee Katharina Kappelhoff, Co-Managing Director of Heartbeat Valerie Kirchberger, Head of Digital at Barmer Marek Rydzewski, Managing Director of the Strube Foundation Karin Strube and Dimitra Panteli from the European Observatory on Health Systems and Policies.

Together for a healthier future

“I’m thrilled to welcome this cohort of health leaders to the Sciana network. They bring commitment, experience, and, most importantly, vision for advancing new forms of health, care, and wellbeing. I’m confident that they will bring much value and insight to the growing Sciana network, and I look forward to supporting these leaders to shape a healthier future,” says Mary Helen Pombo, Program Co-Lead for Sciana and Program Director Health at Salzburg Global Seminar. The new fellows will meet several times over a two-year period to explore the topic of "health system leadership for new forms of health, care and wellbeing". They will also address their personal leadership goals.

“As we look to the middle of the 21st century, the challenges and opportunities faced by health and care systems leaders are significant. This program will enable the fellows to work collaboratively to seize the opportunities and discover solutions to the challenges whilst at the same time developing their leadership skills," says Program Co-Lead for Sciana Sir David Behan.
