MADE Cymru welcomes back Alice de Casanove, Airbus Group


This Friday MADE Cymru students welcome back Alice de Casanove for the second of her two contributions to the International Innovation Management programme. This Friday’s talk is titled “Managing Innovation in the World’s Leading Aircraft Manufacturer”.

The MADE Cymru innovation courses, encourage students to shape a new future for their organisations using innovation management theory. It’s about creating value and looking to continuously adapt and evolve. Alice is a leading pioneer in this thinking.

Alice Works for Airbus North America, where her role is managing and developing an innovation culture for their 4000 plus employees across the USA. From her base in Washington she nurtures and promotes the mindset that’ll be necessary for the company’s future businesses.

Alice graduated from Telecom Paristech with a Masters in Science (artificial intelligence and signal processing). She started her career in a deep tech start-up specialising in cryptography and machine learning, before joining Sagem Communications to manage and develop the value of their innovation portfolio. Alice then joined Mobiclip, developing video technologies and catch-up TV platforms for handheld devices (Mobiclip was eventually taken over by Nintendo).

In 2018 she was nominated ‘Woman Innovator of the Year’ by l’Usine Nouvelle for her innovation project of beehive monitoring by satellites. Alice is presently finishing up her PhD – “The Relationships Between Large Corporations and Start-up Companies” with the Université de Lorraine, Grand Est, France.
