International companies see the move towards a circular and sustainable economy as a complex but necessary challenge. This Master Class helps you understand this thinking and the role you can play in responding to this challenge.

On 29 and 30 January 2020, the IDE Master Class ‘Design for the Circular Economy’ takes place. In this Master Class, you will learn how to implement tools and techniques in your design process to contribute to a circular & sustainable economy. The Master Class is given by Conny Bakker, professor Design for Sustainability and Circular Economy, Bas Flipsen, Senior Lecturer Design for Sustainability and Circular Economy, Ingrid de Pauw, Lecturer Circular Product Design, and Bram van der Grinten, Researcher EcoBulk and teacher sustainable design strategies.

The Master Class hosts a mixture of interactive tutorials and workshops with the aim of plunging you into the theory and practice of designing for a circular economy. The decision to embed circular economy principles is a strategic business decision; this has a huge impact on the way products are developed and designed. The MC addresses the social and technical implications for product design using examples from practice, and provides design approaches that are embedded in theory whilst being pragmatic and usable for designers.
