The great artist and polymath Leonardo da Vinci continues to fascinate us even 500 years after his death. His name and work has become a symbol of innovation and progress. His ability to stand at the crossroads of humanities and natural sciences, symbolized by the famous drawing of Vitruvian Man, made him a genius of creativity.
In his time, complex thinking was common. The following centuries dug a deep gap between the humanities and the natural sciences. Specification of disciplines has led to progress. However, it is clear that further development and the future of innovation depend more than ever on a return to multidisciplinary thinking and synthesis of knowledge. This seems to be the only way to discover something new: open up to the multitude of the world where everything is connected. Just as Leonardo da Vinci understood it.
