Interview with Professor Heinz Wolff

Last month I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to interview Professor Heinz Wolff. Professor Wolff is a highly respected scientist and public figure and is probably best known as the inventor of bioengineering - you may also remember him from his television work including the BBC series 'The Great Egg Race'.

I caught up with Professor Wolff, who was at the University of Warwick for The Institute of Digital Healthcare's 2nd annual conference 'Digital Innovation and Technology for Patient Benefit', inbetween his key note speech 'the brain is as a computer peripheral' and before the panel discussion on 'the pros and cons of focusing digital healthcare projects on patient benefit'.

I was keen to ask Professor Wolff what his thoughts were on what is the essence of engineering, the perception of engineers and women in engineering and what can be done to encourage more children into engineering.

On the day that we spoke the announcement had been made of the £1m Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering, so naturally I was interested to hear what Professor Wolff thought of this.

I thoroughly enjoyed talking to Professor Wolff - he has some very interesting stories and insights.

I hope you too enjoy hearing what he has to say.
