Learning for Innovative Design for Sustainability
Start date: Nov 1, 2016, End date: Oct 31, 2019 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The goal of the Learning for Innovative Design for Sustainability (L4IDS) project is to promote sustainable consumption and production of products and services in Europe. This will be achieved through a knowledge co-creation process and the development of training materials in order to teach and train students, faculty and enterprise staff of the design sector in Innovative Design for Sustainability (IDfS) strategies. The focus is on social business and educational innovation, enabling the creation of sustainable products and services, aligned with European Circular Economy policies and, in turn, a more sustainable society. The initiative aims at strengthening the triad Knowledge co-creation-Design for Sustainability-Innovation where there is a lack of specific learning schemes, courses, and teaching materials at higher education and through continuous professional development.To support the delivery of this project, country hubs (CH) have been developed in four European countries (Ireland, Spain, Sweden and The Netherlands). Each hub includes universities, enterprises and National Design Associations. The cross-Europe hubs assure a comprehensive European approach in IDfS. The involvement of National Design Associations will catalyse the integration and dissemination of project outcomes within the European design sector.The Learning for Innovative Design for Sustainability project will provide the current and future designers of Europe with:- A common vision of Design for Sustainability (DfS) - Innovation and Entrepreneurial opportunities through DfS for Industry (Benchmarking, Internships)- Open Educational Resources (OER) for teaching and training design stakeholders (students, faculty and enterprises’ staff)- Innovative learning environments (teaching resources and knowledge co-creation processes) for IDfS between universities and enterprises.- Skills for applying IDfS
