ABOUT

MOTIF is an independent think tank founded by Katrin Fritsch and Helene von Schwichow. As we have backgrounds both in science and industry, we like to research urgent societal questions and to translate complex contexts into creative, accessible formats. 
Critical, yet constructive. Future-oriented, yet based on the present. Tech-savvy, yet human-centric.
