EcoDesign Sprint is a training programme intended for SME’s and design agencies interested in the possibilities of circular economy.
EcoDesign Sprint is a unique business development and acceleration program: it is a combination of innovation, practical training and product and service development through circular economy thinking and design methods. It is a strategic and hands-on tool for companies of all sectors, bringing together a multidisciplinary team of experts to work with the client company’s needs and novel circular business opportunities.
The primary goal of EcoDesign Sprint is to develop the business of SMEs and create more sustainable products and services for them. Another goal is to provide the participants with in-depth knowledge on the possibilities and business models of the circular economy.
EcoDesign Sprint has been developed by Design Forum Finland as part of the EcoDesign Circle project. So far, EcoDesign Sprint has been piloted in six client companies and six design agencies in three of the partnering countries of EcoDesign Circle – Finland, Sweden and Estonia. The partner of Design Forum Finland in this project was Ethica Oy, a consultant specialized in the circular economy.
