“A fundamental error of our thinking is that we assume the world is endless. It is not.”
Physics professor Ille C. Gebeshuber from the TU Wien works on positive technologies that are beneficial for people and the biosphere.
She is providing solutions. And she is also thinking on how to implement them. This is where humankind currently has problems. Short term goals and interests prevent long term value creation, focus across generations and taking over responsibility for life in general.
“They call us demons. The uncontacted tribes call us demons.”
For life in harmony we need to (re)connect to living Nature, and establish a strong and durable band of love to the creatures around us.

She was elected ‘Austrian of the Year’ in the category ‘Research’ in 2017.
Dr. Gebeshuber has been working abroad for many years, doing her Postdoc at the Physics Department of the University of California and as a professor at the Institute of Microengineering and Nanoelectronics (IMEN) at the National University of Malaysia (UKM). During her numerous jungle expeditions – not only within Malaysia but over time in many other tropical countries – she got inspired by the remarkable properties of animals and plants in the rainforest. If we understand the tricks of nature, which have continuously improved by evolution over many million years, we can use them for positive technologies. Let’s be inspired by Dr. Gebeshuber’s fascinating work at the interface between nature and technology at TEDxTUWien 2019!
