sustainability sustainable behaviour packaging front end of innovation

About

Within the context of my PhD, I developed an applied-ecodesign approach regarding packaging for durable goods, addressing both design management (e.g. data collection though benchmarking), as well as translating the gained insights into design strategies. This way, I provided designers and managers with tools to balance marketing requirements with sustainability requirements. Besides my PhD, I pioneered a separate research line, related to inducing sustainable behaviour through design (in this case specifically related to preventing littering). For this project I secured funding from the Dutch industry-funded anti-littering organisation, Nederland Schoon. I have done collaborative projects with different companies, including Royal Philips Electronics and Smurfit Kappa packaging. I have been project manager for the Interreg-funded Ecomind project. I am a member of the editorial board of “Packaging Technology and Science” and act as an ad-hoc reviewer for several journals including and the “journal of Cleaner Production” and the “International Journal of Sustainable Engineering”. I have been involved in the organization of Eco-design conferences (Eco-Design 2009 en 2011 in Japan and ERSCP-EMSU 2010 in Delft). I acted as guest editor for the “Journal of Design Research” for a special issue on Design for Sustainable Behaviour (Vol. 10, Issue 1/2).
