James Woudhuysen


James Woudhuysen is Professor of Forecasting and Innovation at De Montfort University, Leicester.

'Woudhuysen predicts a Britain 12 years hence in which new homes are designed, manufactured and built in much the same way that cars are now.'

His formation was in the 1960s and early 1970s, before the end of the Vietnam War. Inspired by the Space Race, he wanted to be an astronaut – so he decided to read physics at university. Jame went to Sussex, where he followed his degree with an MA at the Science Policy Research Unit.

After that he pursued journalism, before going on to coordinate postgraduate studies at what is now London’s University of the Arts. For more than 20 years since that time, James has consulted for major corporations and for government.
