Inaugural lecture Christine De Lille

In short


24 May 2018


14:00 - 18:00


Main campus

Since 1 September 2017, Christine has headed the Innovation Networks Research Group (a continuation of the Designerly Innovation Research Group) at The Hague University of Applied Sciences. Her research group develops and offers expertise and tools to help organisations devise innovations within their current and future networked event.

Christine will give her inaugural lecture on Thursday May, 24th 2018. She will present how solutions can be co-created with the government, public and private organisations - with an emphasis on the regional SMEs - to future-proof our society.

Main questions she will address are: How can we design new forms of collaboration? How can we ensure that innovation will really make a difference over the long term? To make this possible, which new forms of organisation do we need? How does design play a role here?
