If you look at history, innovation doesn’t come just from giving people incentives; it comes from creating environments where their ideas can connect!

Over the past few years, sustainability has become a mega trend and gained significant traction among decision-makers in industry and politics. With the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the global community has set out a number of important targets to help us achieve a more sustainable world over the next few decades. And while the SDGs are focussed around 17 specific areas, only a holistic and system-oriented approach will enable us to truly advance on each of these goals.

During the Life Cycle Innovation Conference (LCIC 2018), we will take such a systems perspective when discussing sustainable innovation. We will look at both, innovative approaches and methods to address sustainability challenges as well as innovative products and services that will help us transition towards a more sustainable world.

Our objective is to create a conference that brings together a diverse crowd of change-makers, innovators, entrepreneurs, researchers, practitioners and decision-makers who share our passion for sustainability. LCIC 2018 will combine latest research with practical solutions, innovative approaches and concrete ways on how to implement sustainability most effectively and efficiently into today’s world. Join us in Berlin to collaborate, innovate and co-create a more sustainable world!
