I’ve been a visiting professor at the Royal College of Art since 2008, Innovation Design Engineering Department, and collaborating in various tasks, such as tutoring 1st and 2nd years on Innovation projects from a business approach.

I have also co-created educational modules in collaboration with companies and other academic institutions for visionary thinking purposes.

I complement my activity at the RCA by lecturing on innovation-related expertise, such as how to set up the practice of Design Strategy on a corporation and how to create a vision for a new industry field.
