Strategic Creativity in Service Innovation

At the lectoraat (UK: Readership, US: Professorship) in Strategic Creativity we explore how design and creativity can play a strategic role in society and the economy in general, and in service innovation in particular. We do this with a 'thinking through making' approach where design and reflection go hand in hand.


This Readership is a proud partner in CRISP, a Dutch national research programme in which Design Academy Eindhoven co-operates with the Technical Universities of Delft, Eindhoven and Twente, both Universities of Amsterdam and 60 companies and organisations in the creative industries or service delivery.
