This activity will address, among others, the naval defence industry’s concerns about the implications on the design, supply chain and lifecycle of the Circular Economy goals aimed at fostering material re-use. The naval sector appears also interested to the eco-design of fuel cells. Furthermore, under the maritime area there is a need to address the eco-design of complex combat platforms too, with a vast and diverse number of systems and system of systems therein integrated. This calls for a rethinking of the design in the frame of a new business model for Circular Economy, so to embed the life cycle and to keep under control the costs since the early stage of a new project.

In the aerospace sector, there is an industry interest to an eco-design approach targeting less resources to manufacture parts, the increase of parts lifespan, the recycle of strategic material (e.g. titanium), the enabling of energy recovery.

Examples of key activities foreseen

  • Definition of eco-design requirements in the defence domains (e.g. naval, land, aerospace);
  • Definition of a coherent roadmap, embedding the requirements identified above, including timeline and costs.
