Introduction
I am interested in the front-end of innovation, particularly in how ideas develop to become innovations. In my future work, I would like to integrate more sustainability-related topics. I am generally open to any kind of collaboration for writing and publishing papers, no matter if qualitative or quantitative. I think that collaboration is the best way of learning.

Employees often do not speak about raw ideas, to avoid a loss of face. Therefore, they struggle to develop their ideas further and share them in the workplace.
