Building on the experience of a series of recent action-research projects, Jégou, founder of the sustainable innovation lab Strategic Design Scenarios, will question the current way public action is conducted and discuss opportunities and limits for design to support a co-evolution between social innovation and public innovation.

Jégou is active in various fields and research projects from investigating Creative Communities for Sustainable Living in China, India, Brazil and Africa, to European research projects diffusing social innovation to support sustainable transition and exploring the future of innovation. He is also the scientific director of the public innovation lab 27e Région in France and the coordinator of DESIS Europe, the European branch of the Design for Social Innovation and Sustainability network. He teaches strategic design at ENSCI Les Ateliers Paris, La Cambre, Brussels and Politecnico Milano.
