During this online Expert Café, we invite designers to engage in a conversation about how they seek collaboration with the supply chain around a material or product flow in the circular economy. Whether you are a seasoned circular designer or just starting out, this is the perfect opportunity to learn more about how to collaborate with supply chain partners!

Use the power of the chain to effectively design circularly

Experts from The Acceleration House and CIRCO will share their knowledge and experiences on how to involve the various partners in the chain in the design process. This can range from working with manufacturers and suppliers to collaborating with recyclers and waste processors. By embracing these collaborations, designers can reduce their impact on the environment while improving the quality and sustainability of their products.

In this Expert Café, we will explore what chain collaboration means and its different forms. We will discuss the benefits and explore how this approach can lead to innovative and sustainable products. In addition, we will discuss the main obstacles designers face in chain collaboration, and how these challenges can be overcome. Finally, we will offer practical tips and advice for designers who want to integrate chain collaboration into their own design process.

In short, the Expert Café offers a valuable opportunity to learn more about chain collaboration and how it can contribute to a more sustainable future.

We invite anyone interested in sustainable design to participate in this Expert Café. Whether you are looking for inspiration or practical tips to improve your own design process. This is the ideal opportunity to learn from each other and share your own experiences. Join us and get inspired!

Registration is closed. Email info@circonnect.org if you are interested in attending the next Expert Café.
