His philosophy is based on continuous learning and embraces innovation, technology and sustainability. The subject of his lecture was “How to Invent! Advanced Industrial Design & Technology” Summary of lecture As companies increasingly compete in giant global markets, innovation and design gains greater value than ever before. The role of the designer has become pivotal to a company’s success. Good design gives competitive advantage and builds brand value. However, the process of designing truly innovative products that succeed in the marketplace has always been a difficult and risky task. How can the contemporary designer respond to the new challenges?
