Spring School "Ecodesign of complex Systems"

29/5 - 2/6 2017

This spring school is open to 20 people from EcoSD network and the Design Society. It is supervised
by Pr. Bernard Yannou of CentraleSupélec, administrator of EcoSD and member of the Design Society.


Eco-designing products and services is already a hard and often ill-defined task since it involves both lifecycle
modelling and multi-criteria decision analysis. But eco-designing complex systems is still harder for many
reasons. This doctoral workshop aims at both defining the industrial and scientific issues of eco-designing
complex systems – products, services, plants, socio-technical systems – and presenting practical solutions
for modelling, simulating, optimising and making decisions on the best solutions in the design stage.
The complex systems are dealt through several perspectives:

  • Life-Cycle Assessment;
  • User behaviour modelling;
  • Technico-economic value networks;
  • Design and performance optimisation;
  • Eco-ideation and eco-innovation;
  • Industrial ecology and circular economy.

This doctoral training alternates theory and practice. More than half of the time is spend on case studies,
where participants are asked to apply proposed methodologies and tools, and research workshops, where
they are asked to speak about their research issues.


The training is free of charge. Meals and accommodation are the responsibility of participants.
