3rd PLATE conference - 2019
While discussions on product lifetimes have been going on for a number of years, the topic is currently debated in the context of the circular economy, ecodesign and collaborative consumption.
This conference discusses these topics – whether they relate directly or indirectly to issues of product lifetimes and the environment – and is open to all product types, consumption, and production sectors and applications.
Presentations and sessions at the 2019 PLATE Conference will focus on:
Product lifetimes and product design
Circular Economy and circularity in business
Sharing economy and collaborative consumption
Repair, DIY and maker communities
Policy, regulation and legislation
Obsolescence 4.0 – Digitalisation and product lifetimes
The conference will feature 2 evening networking events, a few workshops and participants have the opportunity to participate in the Fixfest_Reparatur Festival afterwards too.
