Abstract: The aim of SInnDesign was to develop training materials and tools for the implementation of  "Design for Sustainability (DfS)"-principles for furniture, textiles for the habitat and building materials, leading to innovative and competitive solutions. One of the tasks was the adaptation of the PILOT tool for the needs of the textile industry. The developed training materials (theory modules, tools, background materials, etc.) for vocational and educational training which amount to 50 hours of training in total, can be downloaded in five languages.
