In late 2016 I initiated a collaboration between Copenhagen Business School (CBS) and Kyoto University (KU) (Graduate Schools of Design and Management) on the topic of ‘Design Entrepreneurship’. On that basis we have continued throughout 2017 and onwards to exchange ideas and mutually nourish research projects in KU and CBS. I look very much forward to extending this collaboration and to work with my KU-colleagues to build up a supportive environment for PhD-students and faculty on each side.
