Runner-up for best paper award

We are proud to announce that our latest paper “A tool for charting circular consumption journeys” was nominated for the Best Conference Paper Award and received second place at this year’s ERSCP conference. The European Roundtable for Sustainable Consumption and Production (ERSCP) is one of Europe’s key conferences that encourage discussion among stakeholders involved in sustainable consumption and production. This year’s topic was “Circular Europe for Sustainability: Design, Production and Consumption.

The paper introduces one of our new design tools, namely the Circular journeys exploration pack. This tool enables companies to explore circularity from a user perspective and identity important design opportunities to enable circular consumption. The committee acknowledged the paper’s good fit with the conference topic, the authors’ creativity in developing and presenting the proposed tool, and the potential of the tool to support development of products and services for circular consumption.
