In an effort to support the ambitious Circular Economy Strategy action plan adopted by the European Union, this research laboratory acts as a creative space for developing and conducting research in sustainable product management, the results of which will support the transition toward a circular economy. As a result of the research work, methods and concepts are developed for the collection of ecological and social data on products and services from the supply chain, the use phase and the end-of-life phase. This data will be used for the ecological and social evaluation and design of products and services, as well as for further applications (e.g., reporting, compliance management).
