ABOUT ME

Hi! My name is Jaer Mertens and I am an innovator based in Malta.

From my background in product development and digital technologies, I grew a fascination for knowledge flows and open innovation ecosystems. 

Now I am building high-impact digital products and studying open innovation initiatives. 

Shoot me a message when you want to share ideas about innovation, societal impact or any other cool subjects.
