In Goethe’s Faust, Lynkeus is the character who stands on top of the lookout tower, he who ‘was born to see’. The mission of Lynkeus Srl is to look far afield to where a reinvention of relations between organisations is imposed both by new technologies and by socio-economic factors. Lynkeus is an independent strategy consultancy, founded in 2000, which works to identify and promote the best cutting-edge technological solutions to complex socio-economic problems in a variety of areas: ranging from eHealth, eGovernment, eProcurement and ePayment to asset-based welfare and voucher systems for social services. Partially a spin-off of two well-known Italian research centres, Censis, led by Prof. Giuseppe De Rita, and CER, led by the former Minister Giorgio Ruffolo, Lynkeus groups some of the most qualified researchers in the area of healthcare and technology analysis.
