PLATE 2019 – Product Lifetimes and the Environment

September 18 - September 20

Berlin, Germany

PLATE aims to address the tremendous impacts of product lifetimes on the environment. The biannual conference brings together academics, industry, civil society and policy makers working in the field of sustainability and focusing on a variety of products like electronics, textiles, furniture and vehicles.

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 prominent movements of the last years like Circular Economy, collaborative consumption, DIY and maker communities as well as ecodesign. The 2019 PLATE conference encompasses these topics and will embrace a multi-disciplinary perspective including design, geography, technology, business, anthropology, economics, marketing, psychology, law and public policy. Specifically, we welcome submissions of abstracts for paper or poster presentations on the following or related topics

Product lifetimes and product design
Circular Economy and circularity in business
Sustainable production and consumption
Sharing economy and collaborative consumption
Repair, DIY and maker communities
Policy, regulation and legislation for product longevity
Premature obsolescence and product lifetime optimisation
Obsolescence 4.0 – Digitalisation and product lifetimes
