40 degrees celsius, sitting outside with my long friend Deepak Kaura in an awesome coffee-bar in Scheveningen (The Hague) hé actually pointed mé out to (he’s a coffee-freak) talking about innovation and recording my next episode for my Future of Health podcast.
From his role as chair within the CMA (Canadian Medical Association) of the innovation-department Joule, about his role as CMO of 1Qbit (advanced computation including quantum-inspired and quantum computing) and about why frontline staff in healthcare (physicians and nurses) should claim and take on their role in innovation.
