Eduardo de la Fuente

Senior Lecturer in Creativity and Innovation, James Cook University

Eduardo de la Fuente is Senior Lecturer in Creativity and Innovation at James Cook University. The motif that links his various research projects is that markets, organizations, cities and regions, are driven as much by the 'soft' factors of place-qualities, narrative and other 'intangibles' as they are by the so-called 'hard' factors of economics, technology and politics. He is currently completing a monograph, Textures, Atmospheres, Terroir: On 'Soft' Factors in Culture, Economy, Organization and Space; and is co-editing with Ariella Van Luyn a volume entitled, Innovating through Place: Regional Cultures, Economies and Knowledge Ecologies. He is regularly interviewed on radio and his opinions have recently appeared in The Conversation, Architecture Australia, Sydney Morning Herald, Townsville Bulletin, Canberra Times and various other media outlets.
