Chris Doering is a researcher and co-project manager responsible for the development and coordination of the Ph.D program "Eco-Social Innovation by Design" at Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts (HSLU, Switzerland), in collaboration with the National Institute of Design (NID, India).
He studied product and industrial design at Bauhaus University Weimar and at the University of Fine Arts of Hamburg (HFBK). Chris received his Ph.D from Bauhaus University Weimar through a research project on the information exchange in the context of the sustainable transformation of urban energy infrastructure.
Chris believes that groundbreaking ideas are created where diverse perspectives and competences meet. Sustainable development and eco-social innovation needs an open exploration of the possible and the desirable by actors from research, politics, business and society - and the determination to put visions for the future into practice, right here and now.
