Dr. Tuukka Toivonen
I am an entrepreneurial academic specialising in creative processes with a collective dimension (research and teaching) and creative community strategy (consulting and impact).
At Central Saint Martins I lead the MA Innovation Management, an exciting multi-disciplinary course that equips students with the perspectives and skills they need to drive cutting-edge innovation and design processes across diverse contexts, with social impact and sustainability transitions in mind.
After gaining a PhD from the University of Oxford in 2009, I was appointed to several prestigious lectureships and senior lectureships at global institutions such as Kyoto University, Goldsmiths, SOAS and University College London. At UCL, I remain actively involved in research and supervision at Department of Science, Technology, Engineering and Public Policy (where I am a member of the Urban Innovation & Policy Lab) as well as the UCL Institute for Global Prosperity (where I teach sessions on Transformative Entrepreneurship).
