Laurent Mertz

PhD Candidate Cifre Inprocess

During a degree in cultural anthropology, I became interested in material culture, techniques, and technology. I continued my studies in Denmark in a master at the crossroads of science and technoloy studies, participatory design and anthropology. This double influence remains very strong in my current work. Back in France, the Master in Management of Innovation and Technology from Paris Dauphine University and Mines ParisTech allowed me to consider how this approach could be articulated in a context of innovation management.

PhD Candidate Cifre MAIF

Graduated from a double-Master, in Industrial Design at Strate School of Design, then in management at Grenoble Ecole de Management, my different experiences in companies allowed me to take advantage of this dual competence. The latter nevertheless questioned the complementarity - particularly operational - of management sciences and design in the field. This research project is a new opportunity to explore the possibility of a dialogue between the two disciplines.

PhD Candidate Cifre Emakina

Graduated in 2015, from the Research Master: Design, Media, Technologies in which I became interested in the question of narrative and fiction as a design and mediation tool for design and more particularly critical design, I have integrated the Michel Serres Center for one semester. I later joined the CoDesignLab on the ANR project "Descitech" which focuses on collaborations between designers and scientists. I am interested in the pluridisciplinarity process of conception by questioning the way multiples disciplines can work together to bring stronger and better ideas through design management.

PhD Candidate Cifre OTIS

Trained in design and exhibition curation (University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne), Dorian Reunkrilerk undertakes research on the issues and forms of exhibition and design. After passing through institutions (Pompidou Center, Palais de Tokyo, D'Days) and design agencies, the issue of the exhibition is at the heart of his projects. The ambition of his research is established in a desire to make intelligible the design and its challenges at different levels and scales of contexts, including that of the organization, field that he practices within his thesis.

PhD Candidate Cifre Carrefour

Recently graduated from the Master in Management - Innovation & Creation of Start Up of the Grande Ecole Program of the ESC Clermont Group, I was able to realize my last year of study alternately in the innovation department of Societe Generale as a project manager. Innovation and Design Thinking project. After working for a year with designers and anthropologists at the InProcess innovation agency, I naturally focused on innovative approaches inspired by user-centered design practices.
