Research Approach

Our approach and philosophy is that the economic, environmental and social stakes interact strongly with the research and technological innovations. Based on a strong interdisciplinary approach, NEED will cross researches in organization studies, supply chain management and innovative technologies and foster mutual exchanges and feedbacks. In this perspective, the NEED project will achieve a better understanding of research practices to facilitate the evolution toward sustainable thinking and propose new technologies for IoT accordingly. A new vision for sustainable electronics anticipating IOT impact is proposed.


Research approach

A specific work package WP0 has been identified for interdisciplinary management.  There will be meetings each trimester between the researchers and PhD students of all fields. Some PhD students from WP1 and WP2 will work together to exchange their usual methodologies and apply it to real cases. Each PhD student in Science & Technology will devote part of his/her time to include sustainability issues in his/her research approach and motivation. The NEED project intends to educate a future generation of experts with the interdisciplinary background required for sustainability
