    Tony Da Motta Cerveira discovered C-K in 2014 as a student in the PIC master of Ecole Polytechnique. He quickly understood the specificities and the potential of C-K theory through the in-depth innovation course provided by Sophie Hooge, assisted by Olga Kokshagina.

    Today he uses it on a daily basis to explore new strategic spaces as Innovation Director at Mafter Bourgeat.

    He explored no less than 30 innovation fields between 2015 and 2017 using C-K : up to date, these works have generated one commercialised product and 18 pre-developing projects.

    A special interest group (SIG) about “Design Theory”, mainly research-oriented, has been created within the Design Society. They regularly hold meetings, workshops and seminars.

    The current agenda of the SIG has the four following issues:
    – Design Theory and Mathematics: The SIG will explore old and new relations between advances in Design Theory and recent advances in Mathematics.
    – Design Theory and new approaches of high level and flexible structures of knowledge: Engineering Science is more and more based on the search for knowledge integration and it is interesting to explore the link of these efforts to Design Theory.
    – Theory-oriented laboratory experiments: The SIG will explore how Design Theory could help to design new forms of laboratory experiments or new empirical investigations.
    – The design principles and history of Design Theory: In the field of Design Theory, memory and cumulative work is of paramount value. The SIG will stimulate a comprehensive effort to reach a good scientific history of Design Theories.
