Ingrid works an independent project manager and concept developer. The focus of her work has been on initiating projects for the development of creative industries, notably in the design sector, to bring social and economic change.
Since 2005 she has particularly worked on projects that bring together industries (especially SMEs), knowledge institutes, policy makers, designers and end-users on regional and national levels. These projects include Design Brigades, Food4Future, Design4TheFittest and Old=In.
As a project developer and leader, she recently delivered the INTERREG IVB-PROUD project. The overall aim of PROUD is to employ design as a driver for social innovation, economic growth and sustainable development, by creating cross-sector partnerships between public authorities, businesses and designers.
