David is Reinventing The Economy

David Manset had crossed paths with Marco Manca, President & Co-Founder of the SCimPULSE Foundation several years ago at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN).

They discovered they shared a common area of interest and an ongoing collaboration was cultivated. This led to project creation, the development of a new business model for currency as well as other areas of interest that were in alignment with David and the SCimPULSE Foundation.

Let’s Meet David

David Manset, Blockchain Entrepreneur, CEO of Gnúbila, a software company developing data protection solutions.

David is Head of Research & Innovation at Almerys and  President & CEO of Cerebro, a Swiss brain data scientist service company.

Most recently he became a member of the Healthcare Data Institute. David holds a PhD in Model Driven Engineering of Distributed Computing Infrastructures for Biomedical Research, from the University of the West of England in Bristol, and an Executive Master of Business Administration from the Geneva School of Economics and Management, specialized in crypto-currencies.

Over the last decade, he created European and international Big Data platforms in e-health and biomedical research, and over the years has received together with his team several accolades; from the International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva, to the United Nations ITU and several more.

With his passion of working in this field and contributing to international partnerships, with the goal of innovating and transforming solutions his journey delved further.

The Humanitarian Landscape

With his humanitarian studies together with working with NGO’s and having the opportunity to engage at the United Nations his path took him to question how the humanitarian landscape is under crisis and how he could make a difference.

With a particular interest in diplomatic and international relations,and societal challenges, David says, “I am a passionate and persevering entrepreneur, eager to learn and always attracted by new challenges.”

Challenges indeed, he is currently working on an initiative with the SCimPULSE Foundation, "Economy Reinvented" an initiative using crypto-currency in developing regions for humanitarian actions.

Leading Together

I had the chance to ask David what impact did Marco and SCimPULSE have on your path of collaboration. This is what he had to say:

 The ScimPULSE foundation helped in identifying and brainstorming globally with the right people, institutions and corporations. Challenging my ideas under different perspectives, assisted in further development of the concept of a blockchain and complimentary money for the humanitarian aid.

Additionally, SCimPULSE involvement in societal projects provided me with invaluable feedback. Comparable to CERN's particle accelerator, SCimPULSE played the role of an innovation experiment where I could validate my initial hypothesis".

His idea was to develop a complimentary currency that would tackle the dark side of humanitarian aid.  A model that is traceable, showing every transaction and the flow of funds are public. I had the opportunity to ask David, what message he would like to share.

"Spreading virtuously, the blockchain has started matrixing the Internet. Several purpose-specific chains are shaping and soon will be intersecting and forming a new type of resilient information system. All objects of our physical world turning digital will be made free to move from one chain to another, leaving watermarked traces, receiving different market valuations, and transacting under legally specific conditions.

While accompanying this digital renaissance, we must emerge a "fair digital market" respecting the human condition, where value no longer is a purely economic variable supporting efficiency, but also from the societal impact. Seeing beyond "coloured" coins, such "double-valued" coins are key to an efficient and resilient society".

Any entrepreneur with a vision can postulate a new business, but it takes a collaboration of many to make it a success. This project is ongoing and if you’re interested to know more or collaborate get in touch with us at foundation@scimpulse.org

Turn of the year: looking forward!

Dear Friends, Supporters, Fellows, and Partners of the SCimPULSE Foundation,

We have closed 2016 and this is the time to reflect on what we have achieved during the year and also acknowledge you, who have contributed to its success. We are again at that moment when we are called to review our achievements and share our hopes and fears.

Like trying to pick one's favourite child, it is impossible to decide which story or event should be emphasized. From Soundsight Training-helping the blind overcome challenges, Hephestos-redefining the craft of business, BioDynaMo, Science Opera and OpenCare and many others.

Thus, also in order to keep this message short and to the point, I will only talk of our future, even when looking back.

In this light, the most significant 2016 event for SCImPULSE is an easy pick. Two different teams have come at our doorstep, manifesting the intention to spin-off their activities from us into the real world. Realizing our vision that the Foundation should constantly evolve to help solving new challenges irrelevant to the sustainability of any new solution.

We are now working together with the teams, to design a sustainable model of work, aligned with our ideals, to grant access to the novelty they produced not only in technology, but on the organisation of the relative industries, IT and financial services. We are studying the models necessary for the initial support, in order to maintain spin-offs sustainable and the ideas as open as possible. This opens up an entire new range of partnerships that we are starting to nurture and it’s pushing us to study again, and to expand our social networks. Growth being a natural phase.

...and more projects had reached what Massimo calls “escape velocity”, and have seeded business into some stakeholders’ activities. We have started to invest growing attention into narrating our activities, stories and conversations, and into designing ways to trace their impact and evolution beyond the borders of our organisation. You might have noticed a change in our website and social media. This is integral to the accountability and the increase of the human capital that our supporters, and fellows invest in us!

Furthermore, we are exploring the possibility to branch-out while preserving the core values and standards of SCimPULSE.. We are researching different entrepreneurial scenarios to become more invested in great ideas that could potentially affect the lives of billions of people and help humanity rise.

However, whilst transparent as usual, much of this work will still remain invisible to most as we still learn how to work out-loud and nevertheless defend the rights of our stakeholders.

What can you expect from us in the next few months?

- At the end of January, and mid of February, we will arrange two hands-on workshops dedicated to hacker- and maker- teams interested to solve some problems in social/medical care;

- In March, a consortium meeting of OpenCare with a full immersion for all stakeholders;

- The announcement of an already-signed-but-embargoed-still consortium that will get many of you excited, hopefully as much as we all are;

- An addition of new appointees that will join our already solid OpenCare team to help us strengthen the ties with the grassroots initiatives in care in EU;

- Launch of an initiative to facilitate the cooperation by students and young researchers in our activities, at any level in our organisation.

…and this is just the tip of the iceberg!

Many won’t realize how difficult it is, to twine many stories from a very eventful year into just one narrative. I had to choose a cut for our story, and I hope that you will have found what you read interesting and worthy of your time, but I won’t hide from you that the best way to understand SCImPULSE is to write your own narrative of it. In 2017, get to know us, embrace our enthusiasm and passion, and become one of us!

Thanks for being part of 2016 and helping to make the past year so memorable. I invite you to join us in anticipating what will be accomplished in the year to come.

To a great 2017 and a productive and healthy New Year for everyone.
Ad Maiora!

Yours Truly,


Marco Manca, MD
Co-Founder & President
SCimPULSE Foundation
