Brief description: The CROCEMS project is developing training materials and an e-learning platform on circular economy for the manufacturing industry. The main focus is on the application of collaborative robots, which are used for repair, refurbishment, remanufacture and recycling purposes. The target group of the training materials are persons of all educational levels.

The training material is divided into 6 modules:

  • Module 1: Collaborative Robotics Basics – Modular Design & Behaviour
  • Module 2: Sustainability & Circular Economy in Manufacturing Sectors
  • Module 3: Lean Robotics Methodology
  • Module 4: Circular business models for waste management
  • Module 5: Circular Strategy Mapping & Value Networks for Waste Management
  • Module 6: Product Development Cycle & Ecodesign

The Ecodesign research group is responsible for Module 4 and supports the project partners in Module 6.
