A week full of useful information. Come and discuss with experts!

Industries are facing green transition, which requires new solutions, know-how and collaboration. No longer, companies can postpone sustainable development.

The pressure comes from policies, funding, labour markets and end customers influencing the whole supply chain. Ecological aspects are necessary in all business activities: purchasing material and components, product development, production, logistics and marketing. Investing in ecological development creates competitiveness today and in the future.

ECOLABNET organises series of sharp events for manufacturing companies in critical aspects of ecological innovations. In 1,5 hours, you will gain new knowledge, business examples and connections with great experts.

Registration takes place here: You will receive links to events after registration. Feel free to attend more than one event.

ECOLABNET supports manufacturing companies in ecological innovation and creates a network of service providers. ECOLABNET is funded by European Union (European Regional Development Fund) under the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme 2014–2020 and the project partners

Serving SMEs – Designing research, development and innovation services for eco-innovation

Online workshop by VAMK University of Applied Sciences, Design Centre MUOVA

Learn to use design tools for better knowledge about your SME customers

Strengthen your role in the eyes of industrial SMEs. At the event, you will have the opportunity to learn how to apply service design tools to improve your own RDI services and customer understanding. The length of the workshop is effective two hours and is carried out remotely in Zoom (link below). The event is free for participants.

Content of the event:

Problem solving using innovative design methods.

Service design agilely responds to ever-changing situations, challenges and customer needs.
We have created profiles, service ideas and service paths of SMEs based on customer research and interviews. Service design tools make it easier to understand and respond to customer needs.
