The award ceremony was conducted in strict compliance with the Covid-19 code of conduct and protective measures. Thus, Prof Dr Bernhard Ehrenzeller, President of the University of St.Gallen, congratulated Jan-Niklas virtually (see image below).
Jan-Niklas was a doctoral student at our centre primrily working on the projects myStep: Assessment of Small Incentives to Promote Physical Activity and Ally: A Digital Assistant to Lift Your Level of Activity. He is now Innovation Manager at CSS insurance.
