 Pete Thomond


Pete Thomond co-ordinated the British involvement in the "Disrupt-it" project; a 3 million Euro project under the 5th Framework Program of the European Union. The project was established to investigate disruptive innovation, in part to provide help to industrialists wanting to understand how disruptive innovation can be fostered as part of a major competitive strategy.
