IdeaS - Integrated definition and long-range planning of adaptive Product-Service Systems

Many companies shift their focus to product-service-centric strategies. The development of product-service-systems (PSS) requires an integrated and interdisciplinary planning process. IdeaS addresses the challenges related to this long-term planning-process and the integrated roadmapping of PSS. After identifying and combining suitable planning methods and developing an appropriate planning process the project aims for a sophisticated software tool which will allow for an integrated and long-term planning of the product portfolio for PSS.

LAMIS - Landfill Mining Steiermark

Landfill mining refers to the extraction, processing, treatment and recovery of deposited materials. Considering the ever-growing waste generation and the shortage of raw materials, interest in landfill mining has started to grow. LAMIS tries to identify the conditions that make landfill mining projects successful. Such a decision cannot be reduced to monetary aspects. Our institute therefore focuses on the development of an appropriate multicriteria evaluation methodology, which considers economic, ecological, organizational, technological, and legal aspects.
