|Title of event||Dissemination and Implementation of Sustainable Design Tools|
|Organising (SIGs)||Sustainable Design SIG|
|Workshop chairs||Daniela Pigosso, Sophie Hallstedt, Cassandra Telenko, Yann Leroy and Tim McAloone|
Many methods and tools have been developed over the last decades to support industry in the development of more sustainable products and services. Covering different phases of the product development process, and sustainability aspects, the developed methods and tools can be used to support a set of different activities: from requirements specification and conceptualization, to screening of candidate solutions and product evaluation. Nevertheless, their uptake by industry is surprisingly low. How to enhance the implementation and dissemination of the Sustainable Design tools?
With this key question in mind, we have structured the workshop in order to:
– provide an overview of existing tools for Sustainable Design, with try-out of selected tools – discuss success factors, challenges and opportunities for disseminating and implementing
sustainable design tools in industry – discuss strategies for ensuring a higher dissemination of Sustainable Design tools in industry
During the workshop, new trends and approaches for Sustainable Design Tools and their uptake by industry will be discussed. By means of hands-on activities and role-play discussions, we will challenge the participants to find new ways for tools development and dissemination, in a way to enhance the impact of Sustainable Design Tools in industry.
Join our Ecodesign SIG group at LinkedIn to be part of an exchange of ideas and a discussion of Sustainable Design before and after the workshop. It is a great opportunity to share knowledge with other scientists worldwide as well as to receive the latest news of the SIG Sustainable Design.
