Andrea Cattabriga

Strategic Designer, Maker, and Entrepreneur in Modena, Italia

I am a designer, an award winning entrepreneur, consultant and lecturer experienced in strategic design and innovation management with a passion for open and collaborative practices, supporting impactful projects for both private and public organizations.

At the core of my work lies a continuous research and experimentation of design tools and

frameworks in order to improve the capacity to holistically approach and solve complex problems that involve several stakeholders and different aspects like business, technology and humanities.

These tools come from disciplines such as platform/ecosystem design, innovation management, lean and agile project management.

I’ve been involved in the makers movement and I’m currently the president of Mak-ER, Emilia-Romagna regional digital manufacturing network.

My current research is focused on adaptation and transition strategies for Product Service Systems toward the regenerative economy.
