Network conference: Let’s meet & talk LCA!

Date:Wednesday, 20 October, 2021 Time:09:00 - 12:00

Welcome to a digital network conference with focus on inspiration and knowledge sharing on how to organize life cycle work within companies and other types of organizations. The conference goal is to offer inspiration, sharing of both success stories and challenges, possibilities to learn from each other and possibilites to network.

The day will start with a presentation from Henrikke Baumann, Professor at Chalmers University of Techonology, on the research perspective of organization of life cycle work. This will be followed by examples and presentations from three organizations who will share how they work with and organize their life cycle work. After this, all participants are invited to different group dialogues where all attendees can share experiences, challenges and success stories.

We are also determined to give you as many opportunities to mingle and network as possible. At the end of the day we will host a matchmaking and networking event where you, when signing up for the event, can wish for topics to discuss.
