A successful stage is completed
The Summary Report for Stage 8 is published and summarizes three successful years within the center. I gives an overview of Swedish Life Cycle Center, and our impact and activities towards our vision Credible and applied life cycle thinking globally. Stage 8, run from January 2016 to December 2018, has been characterized by inclusiveness through a wider collaboration platform and networking activities with an ambition to reach out to a wider community.
The center’s contribution to sustainable development is visible in various research projects, expert groups, working groups, communication and networking activities. Activities to highlight are for instance the new project Swedish platform for the life cycle perspective (funded by the Swedish Energy Agency), strengthened collaboration with government agencies, influence on various national and international initiatives, closer academic collaboration, more education activities, and a research project which influenced a new ISO standard.
These and other highlights from the stage are summarized in this report, focusing on collaboration, utilization and research. During stage 8, the center has been externally reviewed and this report will present some of the results and added value of the center.
