Title: KATCH_e - Knowledge Alliance on Product-Service Development towards Circular Economy and Sustainability in Higher Education

Abstract: The project aims to develop training materials, which focus on the competences necessary to generate product-service-systems based on the model of a Circular Economy (CE). The application of life-time extending potentials such as cascade use, re-use or refurbishment is at the center of concern. The project focuses on the sectors construction and furniture, and brings together universities, research centers and companies from four different EU countries to cooperate in the following efforts:

  • Analysing the training needs, trends and policies regarding "design for CE"
  • Setting up a stakeholder network to support the transfer of knowledge
  • Developing and testing

    • a problembased and multidisciplinary course,
    • a MOOC ("Massive Open Online Course")
    • product-service development tools

  • Implementing the above in academic and company contexts by creating show cases
