We have a lot of experience in methodology development for the integration of sustainable product design / ecodesign which we can contribute to your research. We can further perform an initial assessment of the environmental improvement potential within your project. Once concrete results and data are available we can convert this into a model for a full LCA according to ISO 14044 and calculate concrete environmental impacts.

For funded research projects, we can support you in the management of the projects, from the compilation of the grant application, the project coordination to the final settlements of the project. If desired, we can make use of our partner network, if further experts are needed. We have successfully contributed to EU funded projects and are registered with a PIC number.
