Design for Sustainability

Our sustainability research includes the development of new sustainable materials – especially fibres, research on product-service systems for sustainability, sustainable consumption and research on sustainability transitions.

The sustainable design research is closely connected with the NODUS, Fashion/Textiles Futures and INUSE research groups as well as the Creative Sustainability Master’s programme.
