Ecointelligent product development aligned with the principles of ECODESIGN and the Circular Economy 

As a research group of the department for engineering design and product development, opens an external URL in a new window we have been working in the field of ECODESIGN in a national and international context since 1996. The main focus of our work lies in the development of ECODESIGN tools (see QUICK LINKS on the right side) and their implementation in cooperation with companies. Additionaly we provide academic teaching and workshops related to ECODESIGN.

Our research interests range from raising awareness, the development of environmental assessment methods, product improvements to environmental communication methods.

The long standing project experience and the established contacts to various project partners enable us to participate in various national and international funding programs. In addition to our Team we have a pool of motivated students interested in researching ECODESIGN questions within the scope of a diploma or PhD thesis.
