The focus of our 7th workshop session was set on circular business models and product lifetime extension. In particular the various actor roles in circular ecosystems were discussed. A special thank you to our speakers Prof. Dr. Florian Lüdeke-Freund with an up-to-date research perspective and Jan Dzulko for his inspiring insights on everphone's Phone-as-a-Service.
INaS-workshops also include breakout sessions. This time, participants worked on business models by challenge-owners AfB Group, Deutsche Telekom, and Reconext. This included lively discussions about the various roles of OEMs, circular serviced operators, and the user.
