In order to create more sustainable products, complete life cycles have to be considered. Significant financial and environmental potential lies in the reuse of components and materials at the end of their useful life.

Design for Disassembly (DfD) is a useful strategy in this context and an emerging field of research. It will only grow in importance as the EU implements increasingly circular economies and supply chains are becoming more insecure.

The summer school provides the participants the knowledge to redesign a product, considering engineering, sustainability and economical perspectives through lectures, hands-on activities and case studies.

The final goal is an understanding of different DfD strategies and when to use which. This is done through a complete redesign of a product and a reflection on what the new knowledge means to the various disciplines, represented by the diverse set of participants.

Particular previous knowledge is not required. A reading list will be provided in order to establish a common vocabulary and level of knowledge. Participants might come from a product design, engineering, economics, mathematics or other background: A multidisciplinary audience is desired. A keen interest in sustainability in the industrial context is crucial as well as being able to independently infer links between the new knowledge and already acquired skills.
