The course deals with the central role of designers in the transition from a linear to a circular economy. Based on the semester projects and in exchange with experts from research and business, circular design strategies were identified, contextualized with knowledge and implemented in our own design work.

After the introduction to circular design in relation to materials, components and systems, the individual projects of the course participants were taken as the starting point for further analysis and discussions.
