READi Design Lab Team
Laboratory Director and Doctor of Engineering (D.Engr.) from Arts et Métiers ParisTech
Course Leader of the Interactive Design undergraduate curriculum at L’École de design from 2004 to 2010, Grégoire Cliquet now runs the first Design Lab dedicated to Interactive Design known as READi (Applied Experimental Research in Interactive Design). As a result of the management and faculty roles held over the years, he gradually built up his competency repertoire in Instructional Engineering with a focus on Creative Teaching and Innovation. In addition, he oversaw several projects with industrial partners, including Orange, Dassault Systèmes, Technicolor, etc.
This wide range of experiences in the field of Information and Communication Technologies led him to specialize in digital data-viewing techniques, whose “datatainment” angle caught his eye for its recreational and educational 3-D representations. Grégoire Cliquet has been a member of the “Adobe Education Leader Program” since 2012.
A trained photographer, the breadth and diversity of subjects with whom Laurent Neyssensas has gotten up close and personal rivals those he has captured behind his lens for advertising or scientific purposes. His curiosity for technology opened up many avenues, and led him to zoom in on breakthrough innovations. Partnered with major actors in the field, he heads up benchmarking projects, and has put together competencies on the methods of “creative trend-monitoring”, collaborative work, and on a broader level, collective intelligence.
He is a frequent speaker at conferences, initial and ongoing trainings on the methodological and strategic aspect of project management and knowledge organization in the creative field.
