The Industrial Liaison department at the University of Leoben in Austria is proud to announce the commencement of the SUPPORT project. The project – funded by the EU Leonardo da Vinci initiative (Reference 1) – is intended to generate education materials to encourage systematic innovation in the sustainability field. Partners involved in the project come from five different parts of the European
Community. They include:-
· Fraunhofer Institute in Aachen, Germany
· Joanneum Research in Graz, Austria
· CREAX from Ieper, Belgium
· AREA from Trieste, Italy
· University of Maribor in Slovenia
TRIZ is expected to play a significant role (Figure 1) in the achievement of the project objectives, offering the participants best practice systematic innovation capabilities in a structure that inherently points users in the direction of more sustainable technical and business solutions
The project has a duration of two years. The first pilot sustainable innovation training
courses will be running towards the end of the year.
