Lecture on industrial symbioses and the designer’s potential role(s) in connecting material resources with process paths by PhD student Luca Alessandrini.
Design School Kolding, in collaboration with and Lifestyle and Design Cluster, invites you to an open lecture by Luca Alessandrini who will share the background for and insights from his ongoing PhD project. With a point of departure in the concept ‘industrial symbioses’, he investigates the relationship between sustainability and materials to support circular resource streams and process paths.
In the lecture, Luca will elaborate on the overall methodology used in the project, bring in material-based case studies from all over the world, elaborate on Italian-based potential industrial symbioses based on existing waste resources and how to potentially be able to transfer this to other cultural and geographical areas.

After the event, it will be possible to continue dialogue with Luca on possible resources used or produced in your company.
What can you as student gain from participating?
As a student, you can for instance gain knowledge into how to build a bridge between research and industry, get valuable insights from case studies and become inspired on how to apply analytical and synthesis-driven methods.
