Product Lifetimes and the Environment Conference


5th international PLATE conference will be May 31-June 2 in Finland!

The 5th international PLATE conference (Product Lifetimes and the Environment) addresses product lifetimes in the context of sustainability. The PLATE conference, which has been running since 2015, has successfully been able to establish a solid network of researchers around its core theme. The topic has come to the forefront of current (political, scientific & societal) debates due to its interconnectedness with a number of recent prominent movements, such as the circular economy, eco-design and collaborative consumption. For the 2023 edition of the conference, we have encouraged researchers to propose how to extend, widen or critically re-construct thematic sessions for the PLATE conference, and the call is constructed based on these proposals.

The 2023 conference will be organized by Aalto university. More information here.
