Through my career I have been involved in sustainable product development / ecodesign for various companies. It was interesting to implement innovations for hardware (e.g. machine tools, electronics and many more)  and software products, i.e. CAD and PLM systems.

The combination of psychology and mechanical engineering lead to the development of the activities around creativity engineering. I developed a lecture at the Vienna University of Technology, the Summer School on Creativity Engineering and various international seminars and workshops for academia and industry.

After focusing my industrial activities an sales and business development, I have been working for different engineering and planning companies in the automotive sector to build, generate and enhance businesses.
