The Annual Report 2018 summarizes an exciting year
The Annual Report 2018 is published and summarizes an exciting year! The organizational move from Gothenburg Centre for Sustainable Development (GMV) to Technology Management and Economics (TME) at Chalmers has raised new opportunities, where closer collaboration with Chalmers has been enabled.
For academic partners the newly started working group Academy Group gathered participants for a symposium about teaching at universities in February, which led to the initiative of a Swedish PhD course in LCA. In fall 2018 the course Advances in life cycle assessment was held for the first time, supported by the Academy Group.
2018 was also the second year of the project Swedish platform for the life cycle perspective funded by the Swedish Energy Agency. The project has now gained momentum, including several networking activities, increased knowledge building, the launch of a new website and more external communication, which enables greater impact on the society in the future.
These are just two examples on Swedish Life Cycle Center’s capability to act as a focal point for the life cycle perspective in Sweden, and deliver results that affect the life cycle related field for all of us.
