Integrated Quality Design Project

Students analyse the meaning of the concepts Smart Products, Materials Circularity, Products-as-a-Service, or Beyond Obsolescence, and how these trends affect corporate product development. Based on this, they develop a guideline of a new service ("Innovation Audit") on the respective innovation trend for our corporate partner Quality Austria.
