My background is in management of creative industries (Bocconi and Copenhagen Business School) and philosophy of aesthetics (Kingston University). I have a PhD in design and innovation management (CBS).
In my research, I draw from Science and Technology Studies (STS) and continental philosophy, and I combine studies of design management, innovation, and slow movements with organisation studies. I explore how design and innovation processes emerge, how values are created, and the role of the human and non-human actors in innovation, design, and craft processes, and how these actors mobilise organisational politics and aesthetics.
Designing in the Anthropocene, ethical sustainability, slow design-driven innovation, and the aesthetics of craft are at the core of my investigations. Before joining CBS, I have had research grants (from the British Council, British Academy, Economic and Social Research Council, and Arts and Humanities Research Council) to understand how social innovation can create social improvements to enable the transformation (or establishment) of the creative ecosystem, or to further create wider collective creative engagement and development and to promote cultural heritage.
I am currently researching how craft, slow-design practices and creative enterprises support rural areas, engage with marginalised communities, and create alternative approach to contrast climate change.
I am leading the Horizon Europe Project “Hephaestus” - Heritage in EuroPe: New tecHnologies in crAft for prEserving and innovaTing fUtureS. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon Europe Research and Innovation Programme under Grant Agreement 101095123, running from April 2023 for four years.
The overarching ambition of HEPHAESTUS is to bring together cutting-edge technologies with traditional craft to co-create solutions in the form of a suite of tools, methodologies, and business models to make the future of European craft ecosystems socially, culturally, environmentally, and economically sustainable.
HEPHAESTUS will test and evaluate solutions co-created across five regional craft ecosystems within a “Future of Craft” Green Living Lab situated in Bornholm, a Danish Island and regional municipality given the title of World Craft Region. Ultimately, the project sets out to create a sustainable network (especially including regional realities) of heritage sites, cultural and creative sectors, institutions, universities, local, regional and national authorities, enterprises, and other relevant stakeholders engaged in preservation of craft heritage that will take the project’s results, further adapt and deploy them in a broader range of craft ecosystems, and ensure a long- lasting legacy of the HEPHAESTUS project.
