Personlig profil

Forskningsprofil

Linda Nhu Laursen is Associate Professor of Design at the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering at Aalborg University and Head of Research at the AAU Design Lab. Her main research interests are (sustainable) design and innovation, in particular conceptual design, design expertise, circular design, (open) innovation, ecosystem, strategic design and design thinking.

Academic Background

After completing her PhD on the topic of (open) innovation in 2017, Linda Nhu Laursen continued her research on understanding innovation and design in leading organisations with the intention to provide designers and innovation managers with insight on seminal design products, that stay relevant in the market and for users and company, which they were designed for. She has received both private (Unilever) and national funding for her research.

Specific research questions that she is currently working on are: 

  • How can designers design for longevity and circularity?
  • What constitutes a design expertise? How can it be taught?
  • How can (inter-firm) innovation be organized?
  • What is characteristic in the design of seminal strategic durable products?

Linda Nhu Laursen has published on these topics in journals, such as Design Issues, Design Studies, Journal of Cleaner Production, Sustainability, Industrial Marketing Management, European Journal of Marketing etc. Furthermore, she serves as an editorial board member for Aalborg University Press, Applied Ergonomics, and Journal of Design Research.

As Research Head of the Design Lab she drives research on how to create products that will solve long-term problems for the planet and that people will use, cherish and love for a long time. She leads research on how to create products, that are not prematurely discarded, because they have become obsolete either functionally, aesthetically or technically. In the AAU Design Lab they experiment with concepts, methods and new systemic approaches to sustainable design, development, materials and production, that can extend products' value.
