Role in the project: co-creation activities

Teaching: Industrial Design Engineering, Material and process oriented design, cocreation, production methods and systems.

Field of research:
- Industrial Design Engineering
- Design for changing production
- Open innovation though co-creation

Industrial design engineering (IDE) is an open research community that focuses on transdisciplinary research through design. IDE utilizes design skills such as design thinking, creativity and prototyping to interact with different stakeholders involved in the transdisciplinary research.

Design for changing production addresses the challenges and opportunities to develop products for the factory of the future. In particular, the research focuses on the make context during design (materials, prototyping, connections, ...) and the simultaneous development of production systems that adhere scalability and the related change processes.
