3rd PLATE conference 2019

Wednesday, 18 September – Friday, 20 September 2019
Location: Berlin, Germany

The 3rd international PLATE conference (Product Lifetimes and the Environment) addresses product lifetimes in the context of sustainability. While discussions on product lifetimes have been going on for a number of years, the topic has come to the forefront of current (political, scientific & societal) debates due to its interconnectedness with a number of recent prominent movements , such as the  circular economy, ecodesign and collaborative consumption. The conference encompasses these topics – whether they relate directly or indirectly to issues of product lifetimes and the environment – and is open to all product types, consumption, and production sectors and applications.

PLATE 2019 is organised by Fraunhofer IZM in cooperation with Technische Universität Berlin.
